BLUE HERON COMMUNITY GARDEN
In 2006, we partnered with the City of Atlanta and Park Pride to establish the first community garden in North Atlanta.
The Blue Heron Community Garden is home to over 30 organic plots. The largest plot is dedicated to growing vegetables for the St. Luke’s Crossroads Kitchen, a volunteer-based effort that feeds unhoused people in Midtown.
Every Fall, the gardeners come together to celebrate the season with a harvest dinner. Organic garden food is shared and friendships are strengthened!
Compost is for Community Gardeners only.

Interested in a plot at the Community Garden?
The garden is open to the public on a first come, first serve basis and for an annual fee, gardeners are given their own plot to tend.
The garden is organic, and organic gardening principles must be followed – no chemical fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides.
Gardeners are also responsible for working together to maintain the common areas in the garden.
