In this issue, we’re celebrating spring and all that goes with it. We know that you’ve got to be just as glad as we are to enjoy some warmer — and hopefully — drier weather.
Our cover feature this go-round is the children’s garden at the Georgia Southern University Botanic Garden. Each year, children are invited to experience what it’s like to plant, nurture and harvest your own food. What a great experience that is for our local kids!
Coming up soon is the annual All Fired Up! Exhibition and Sale at the Roxie Remley. We spoke with a couple of the participating artists, and we are looking forward to seeing their work at this wonderful event, along with the work of so many other local talented artists. Be sure to come out and support these hardworking folks.
Our Everyday Hero this month is a familiar face to many of us who regularly attend shows at the Averitt — Rahn Hutcheson. As Executive Director at the center, he’s everywhere doing a bit of everything. But he took a little breather to talk with us about leadership and what he’s learned from the great leaders he’s had the privilege of working with.
Bees. We don’t think too much about them until they buzz around us. But they are an important part of our ecosystem. We are featuring the local beekeepers association in this issue, and we think you’ll be fascinated to learn what they’re up to and how they contribute to our community. It’s a honey of an article!
Lastly, we shine a spotlight on women’s health, as we take a look at the upcoming Climb Out of the Darkness event. The annual event helps local women who deal with postpartum depression.
We’re still seeking a writer for our Eagle Insider column, so if you’re interested, give our editor a ring. We’d love to hear from you!
