Thanks for supporting garden tours

On May 31, hundreds of people wandered through four Coweta County gardens with very different “personalities,” getting ideas that they could take home to apply in their own gardens.

The Coweta County Master Gardener Extension Volunteers (MGEVs) would like to thank The Newnan Times-Herald for helping make our annual garden tour such a success. We would also like to thank the owners of the gardens, Greg and Susan Emerson, Pat and David Farmer, Keith Robinson, and Liz and George Tedder, for their generosity in sharing their gardens with the public for a very good cause. Thanks so much to all of the MGEVs who worked hard to get the gardens ready for the tour and who assisted on tour day. We also appreciate the support of Lana H. Jones, Agriculture and Natural Resources Program Assistant, UGA Extension - Coweta County.

This tour benefits Extension educational programs including youth gardening programs provided for 4-H and Newnan/Coweta Boys and Girls Club, as well as scholarships for 4-H camp and graduating seniors. MGEVs’ youth programs provide information and hands-on training to help children become aware of where their food comes from and to develop respect and stewardship of the environment.

This education is a community effort, and the Newnan Times-Herald has once again proven itself a strong advocate for our community. Thank you very much for your support.

Sincerely,

Allen Summerlin, Chairman
