We Are the Red Clay

10 Million of us live on it.  Many are born over it.  Many are buried in it.  Georgia Red Clay is the foundation of this Southern State.  We came from it and will return to it.

Our peaches, peanuts and pecans all grow over this red clay.  Many of our bricks are fired from this clay.  This humble red dirt says so much about life.  It was here before we were, and will be here when we’re all gone.  

Red Clay is patient, weathered, strong and lasting.  To be like the Red Clay would be an achievement indeed.
