RGC is excited to announce its new partnership with Roswell Historical Society at the Old Roswell Cemetery. We kicked off the partnership on September 6 with a tour led by Janet Jackson, Roswell Historical Society Cemetery Project Coordinator, highlighting history and the landscape elements, trees, plantings, native plants and wildflowers. We are adopting a plot and working with overall clean-up and maintenance of the cemetery.

On September 22, we had a mini work session to get the ball rolling at the cemetery. We were trained on how to groom the heirloom irises. Additional sessions are on Oct. 4, 11, and 18 at 10 am.
