The Garden Club of Georgia, Inc. (GCG) recently held a Tri-Fresher for all those who have achieved consultant status in Environmental, Gardening and Landscape Design. The focus this year was on community, and to be able to further cooperation between individuals, municipalities, and the world neighborhood in which we live.

Speakers during the two-day conference included Tony Johnson, garden manager at the UGA Research and Education Garden at Griffin, Robin Porter, owner and manager of Millpond Nurseries, Rene Nygren, daughter of the planners for Serenbe, the planned community near Palmetto, and Scott Tigchelaar of Senoia Historic Development Enterprises.

The consultants toured several facilities that encouraged “green development”, and heard about several more from the speakers. Thirty members of GCG, Inc. from all over the state were in the group. The Tri-Fresher was organized by Gail Berthe of the Concord Garden Club.
