Here is our upcoming Calendar:

April 19, 2018

Our meeting will be hosted by Bettina Vernon  at This Old Farmhouse GA at 17205 GA Highway 27 at 5:30.  This Old Farmhouse GA is a non-profit focusing on both conservation and Historic preservation.  During the last four years, Ms. Vernon has worked with a certified arborist to identify the native and non-native trees and plants on the property. One of her main goals is to restore the land to its native state. She has made great strides in the removal of much of the Chinese privet that had taken over the land. In addition to eradicating these non-native invasive plants, the arborist helped her identify 20+ trees. The mission at This Old Farmhouse Georgia is to teach youth about self-sufficient living and the fascinating history of rural farming practices during the 1920’s. This Old Farmhouse is located on Scenic Highway 27 just north of Centralhatchee in Heard County. It was built around the 1900’s and contains relics and artifacts common to the area. Located on its’ grounds are outbuildings of various sizes, designs, and purpose. Make plans now to join us to see this wonderful place.
