MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga.- The Oconee Area Citizen Advocacy presents its inaugural “Not Your Mama’s Garden Tour” Saturday, April 21 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. a news release says.

Starting at Saint Stephens Episcopal Church in downtown Milledgeville, the tour highlights six gardens in the picturesque small town. This unique tour is friendly for citizens of all ages.

“There has not been a garden tour in Milledgeville in several years, and as a gardener myself, I thought this would be a wonderful opportunity to raise awareness and money for Citizen Advocacy,” Margaret Chambliss OACA Coordinator said. “The tour, however, would never have happened without the willingness of the gardeners, the Georgia College public relations team, the OACA board of directors and Master Gardener Rae Wade and her husband Arnold Wade.”
