Brownwood Park Community Garden Needs YOU!
Brownwood Park Community Garden was created in 2006 by a group of east Atlantans, with the support of Park Pride and was the first community garden in a City of Atlanta Park.
Over the years we have seen the garden grow and develop into a beautiful place for local folks to grow vegetables, flowers, herbs, and fruit. As well as it is a place to sit, relax, and contemplate among the garden plants and pollinators. The garden has a small group of wonderful gardeners and is visited by many people, Brownwood Community Garden needs your support to continue to be a beautiful vibrant garden and a centerpiece of Brownwood Park.
There are a few ways you can support the garden,
- Become a gardener! Plots are available and grow your own flowers, herbs and vegetables.
- Organize your friends, family or organization to work in the garden, it is so rewarding!
- Donate seeds, native plants, and fruit trees to increase the diversity of the garden.
- Donate gently used garden hand tools.
Please contact email@example.com if you are interested or have further questions about supporting urban gardening in Brownwood Park. We look forward to meeting you!
