Fruit orchard planted in Mill Hill East Macon Arts Village

MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT)— A new fruit orchard is growing on Hydrolia street near Taylor Avenue.

It takes the trees a few years to grow.

“It shows great things can happen when people work together and realize that more of our interests dovetail then they separate us,” said Alex Morrison, executive director for the Macon-Bibb Urban Development Authority.
