Two Grants to Help Restore Andalusia's Cow Barn

Two Grants to Help Restore Andalusia's Cow Barn

Andalusia, novelist Flannery O'Connor's final home, receives two grants that will help stabilize and restore the cow barn on the property, according to a  Flannery O'Connor-Andalusia Foundation news release. 

The stabilization of the cow barn is the fifth restoration project at Andalusia in the last seven years. Work on the barn has involved removing trees that were too close to the building, changing the landscape so that rainwater doesn't cause damage, four walls received new support beams, broken rafters were replaced and more.

Thanks to two $10,000 grants, one from Watson-Brown Foundation, and one from the  E.J. Grassmann Trust, the next phase will involve salvaging the milk parlor.

 

Andalusia is open to the public every day except Sunday and Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.  For more information, visit Andalusia's website.

'Not Your Mama's Garden Tour'

'Not Your Mama's Garden Tour'

 

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.”
