Community Garden

we partnered with the City of Atlanta and Park Pride in 2006 to establish the first community garden in north atlanta.

The garden is open to the public on a first come, first serve basis. For an annual fee gardeners are given a small plot to tend. Organic gardening principles that avoid the use of chemical fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides must be followed. Gardeners are also responsible for working together to maintain the common areas in the garden.

contact Brooke Vacovsky (brookev@bhnp.org) for plot availability.

Our garden is home to over 30 organic plots that are managed by groups, individuals, and Blue Heron. Our largest plot is dedicated to growing vegetables for the St. Luke’s Crossroads Kitchen, a volunteer-based effort that feeds the homeless 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!
