Community gardening has a strong and growing presence in Atlanta including gardens in city parks! Park Pride has administered the community gardening program since 2007, when the City of Atlanta passed legislation allowing gardens in city parks.
Community gardens bring positive activity to the parks. They provide a forum for neighbors to join together and forge strong community bonds. They are a source of fresh, affordable, local produce, some of which is donated to community members in need.
We have 20 community gardens in our program, each with its own unique flavor. Â View the profile pages linked below to learn more about what’s going on at each garden.
Want to visit a community garden? Take a look at the map of Park Pride community gardens below to find your nearest community garden. All Park Pride community gardens are open for visitors during park hours (just remember to get permission before picking any food).
Are you interested in starting a community garden in your neighborhood park? Â Take a look at the Community Garden Information Sheet and the community garden adoption agreement to learn more about the program and how to get started. Â If you have questions about the community garden program, contact Amanda Martin at 404.546.7981 or email her at [email protected].
