This exhibit features faerie homes and gardens created by Austin area gardeners, architects, artisans, businesses, clubs, families and school groups. These intricate, whimsical little abodes are crafted with natural materials such as twigs, bark, shells, rocks, etc. They will delight your kids, especially those in the stage of belief and wonder about such mystical things. Children can peek around the grounds with curiosity, hoping to spy some faeries and gnomes along the escarpment pathway.
