  • This is a first for us – we're bringing the UGA, State Botanical Garden of Georgia to your front door. We are excited to have Shelly Preston, their Director of Horticulture, as our guest speaker. We are not gold medal Olympians, however, we do have Georgia Gold Medal Plants. Shelly will embellish on these wonderful winners and the history of the Gold Medal Plant Program. Their mission is to assist Georgia homeowners in selecting plants that will thrive and look beautiful in their gardens and to help promote the green industry in our state. That's what we're all looking for – plants that thrive and beautify. Please RSVP by calling our office at 770.305.5412 X 7. Free class.

  • This is our first introduction of the Fayette County Beekeepers. Their stated mission is to facilitate education and advocate community awareness about honeybees, beekeeping, and native pollinators in the Fayette County area while actively encouraging responsible, sustainable beekeeping practices. Effective February 10, 2017 the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service designated the rusty patched bumblebee as an endangered species — the first such designation for a bumblebee and for a bee species in the continental U.S. Without out pollinators where would we be? No vegetables, no fruit, no flowers. Please RSVP by calling our office at 770.305.5412 X 7. Free class.
