University named Garden of the Month
The Georgia College campus has achieved the honor of Garden of the Month presented by Milledgeville Garden Club.
“We are always thrilled to see and enjoy the university grounds so full of life and color,” said garden club member Sue Wright. “The citizens of Milledgeville and Baldwin County appreciate the work that keeps the campus and flower beds so beautiful and colorful.”
Wright and fellow club member Ann Vinson presented the Garden of the Month sign to the university Thursday morning. The sign will remain on display throughout the month of March on the corner of Clarke and Montgomery streets.
The 83-year-old garden club presents the Garden of the Month honors to residents, churches, business and other organizations that take pride in the appearance of their yards, Vinson said.
Georgia College’s grounds superintendent Susan Daniel and groundskeeper supervisor Tommie Miller credit the work of groundskeeper Jennifer Ray for the vibrant flower gardens on display across the campus.
“It’s so nice to get up every morning and look forward to coming to work,” Ray said. “I love to design the beds, plant them and watch them grow and blossom. Flowers make me smile.”
