Plant your Own Garden at a Fulton County Community Garden | Print |

 

Fulton County Cooperative Extension works in the community providing the opportunity for families to experience growing their own fresh vegetables. Community Gardens provide gardening opportunities for the physical and social benefit of people and neighborhoods while giving them a chance to come together, work, grow and learn together.

“Our community garden program provides a means for gardeners to learn different growing methods from one another, while cultivating friendship, as well as produce,” states Menia Chester, Director of Fulton County Cooperative Extension. “Community gardens are a way for residents to grow their own vegetables, fruit, herbs and flowers in an urban environment.”

Cooperative Extension sponsors three community gardens in Fulton County that allow community members to grow their own vegetables or flowers if they do not have the space. The gardens are located at the North Fulton Service Center, the Adamsville Regional Health Center and the South Fulton Service Center.

Gardening enhances the health and well-being of participants of all ages, backgrounds and abilities. Fulton County Cooperative Extension staff and volunteers will assist residents with growing vibrate gardens from planting to harvesting.

“Fulton County Government is committed to supporting urban agriculture,” said Chester. “We not only provide garden plots, we provide guidance that includes soil testing and training.”

Residents interested in planting a garden in one of the county’s three community gardens should call 404-613-7670 for more information.

Fulton County Cooperative Extension hosts monthly classes on topics such as nutrition, financial management and gardening. Classes are held in various locations throughout the county.   For more information, please call 404-332-2400.
