Hart EMC supports botanical
garden's conifers
T
he Hart County Botanical Garden in
Hartwell celebrated the debut of its
newest addition, the Conifer Walk,
at a grand opening on March 27.
The Hartwell-based Hart Electric
Membership Corp. (EMC) Foundation
helped make the Conifer Walk possible
with a $4,160 grant that was used for an
irrigation system.
In applying for the grant, the botanical
garden noted that an irrigation system
will water the conifers late at night and
early in the morning, which is best for the
plants, and will enable the garden's
designer to incorporate perennials, grasses
and groundcovers that share the conifers'
horticultural requirements.
The new Conifer Walk also features

and toys that will be distributed to families in
need this Christmas. Joey Yancy and Jason Ellis
(above) won $1,000 in the bass category, with
a total weight of 17 pounds, 8 ounces, and
Silas Turner and Clint Kirk took the $1,000 prize
in the crappie category with a total weight of
8 pounds, 9 ounces.

works to improve literacy in Macon

pandemic, the foundation began a
reading-intervention program to help prevent students in kindergarten through sixth
