Wild Violet Gardens is a 5-acre urban homestead that is home to 5 cats, 2 dogs, and 7 humans. We have a garden where we grow a variety of annual veggies and perennials herbs and flowers, lots of open space, and a small creek running along one edge of the property. We are a 2 minute drive from our neighborhood library, 15 minutes from beautiful Turkey Creek Nature Preserve for swimming and wildlife), 15 minutes from the Avondale neighborhood of Birmingham (a young, buzzing area known for its trendy coffee shops and craft breweries, live music venues, and eclectic mix of restaurants) and 20 minutes to Sidewalk Cinema in downtown Birmingham.Drive right up to your site for car, van, or camper. There is plenty of space for additional tents or vehicle camping as well. You will have access to our geodesic dome outhouse with hose fed water (not heated) and a flushing vermiculture composting toilet. There is no power at the listing but you can use an outlet near the house if you need to charge devices. Explore the gardens and the creek while you're here, too! If you're lucky, you'll get visited by one of our 4 sweet dogs or 3 kitties. Our property has the feel of being out in the country but is on the edge of an urban/suburban neighborhood. Our property is adjacent to a gas station. Some areas of the ground are uneven or with obstacles, so take caution when walking the property. We advise that you stay on our walking paths to avoid ant beds or other critters.

We really enjoyed our night at Wild Violet Gardens. It's a cozy field, the golden rod were in bloom when we were there, and the hosts were very nice. Their flush vermicompost toilet in the geodesic dome is also very ingenious and surprisingly charming!

Lovely spot
Our host was kind and informative! Wonderful land with lots of potential. Beautiful tall grass- I do wish there were more walkable paths so we were able to walk down and see the creek but unfortunately we missed out on that. Flushable toilet would work better with a better hose but I’m glad there was a flushable toilet at all! A tent that is already set up and ready for sleeping is definitely a plus after driving a long way. Although the spot was convenient, you can very clearly hear the loud highway while trying to sleep which was also a bit scary for the little ones. Nevertheless, A great spot definitely going to add to favorites!

Lovely host.
This place was a hidden nook in nature and yet close to grab gas and get back on the road. Danielle was very responsive and kind. Flushing toilet was a plus! Wild violets and other wild flowers were pretty. It was a convenient place to spend the night while passing through the Birmingham area. There is a lot of creativity on this property and in the camp spot.
