Meet Martha Price
Our New President of The Garden Club of Georgia, Inc.

"Sowings Seeds of Knowledge Reaps Conservation with Beauty"

By Phillip Price


Martha Price
Martha is a native of Blakely, Georgia in Early County. Blakely is part of Magnolia District in The Garden Club of Georgia, Inc. She attended Blakely public schools graduating with National Scholastic Honors. Martha continued her education at Troy State College (now Troy University) in Troy, Alabama. She then met me and the rest is history. She loves music and plays French horn, piano and organ.

Martha began her successful civilian career with the United States Federal Government, First- US Army Aviation Center and then with the US Air Force Materiel Command. During her years of federal service, Martha became known as the expert for US Serviceman and Survivors benefits and frequently was called on to brief other agencies; Veterans Administration, Social Security and other military services on this program. This unofficial title especially came to light during congressional preparation of legislation for improvement and protection of military surviving spouse benefits when she received a personal phone call from a US Representative from another state (sponsor of the Legislation) for advice and input. During her career, Martha gained many Citations for Individual Excellence at the Air logistics Center level, and AFMC Command Level. Martha completed her Government career, taking early retirement as Senior Program Analyst in the United States Air Force Electronic Warfare Directorate, Robins Air Force Base, Georgia.

Martha then joined The Garden Club of Georgia, Inc. Although Martha has had a lifetime love of flowers, spawned by her father's intense love, talent and success for growing all kinds of plants, she was unable to begin her garden club activities until retirement due to the demands of her Government career. She has served as an officer of the her local club, Village Green Garden Club and Magnolia District, as well as Recording Secretary and 1st Vice President of The Garden Club of Georgia, Inc.

Martha is an Accredited Flower Show Judge, completed Garden Study Course, Landscape Design Course and attended other workshops and programs sponsored by the organization.

Martha ensures that her mother is taken care of, and she loves people in general. Her theme is so appropriate for her: Sowing seeds of knowledge reaps conservation with beauty. Martha and I also enjoy our farm in Alabama when time allows.
