Cottage Garden Care

We encourage members to stop by anytime it’s convenient for weeding in our garden. Bring a friend or family member with you to pick up debris and pull a few weeds!  If you have any questions, please text Pam Cammarata (770-314-9541).

The Board voted to hire Beltran Landscaping for monthly maintenance of the grounds and gardens. No chemicals will be used. Members will still be needed for weeding and picking up debris from the garden areas.
