Community gardens in Georgia from the perspective of CTAE directors
MetadataShow full item record
Fresh picked vegetables give many people the feeling of summer. Community gardens provide the opportunity to grow those vegetables as well as herbs, fruit and ornamental plants. Although community gardens are generally thought of as being an urban trend, Georgia proves that smaller cities can also be home to this growing movement. Georgia CTAE directors in 27 counties are aware of and have reported having a community garden(s). Community gardens are a tool that can be used to build relationships, relieve stress, lower grocery food costs, lower food miles and reduce pesticide and insecticide use.
