For the year, you receive a raised bed complete with soil, access to standing hose bibs with hoses and watering wands, free classes and workshops, and gardening support from Master Gardeners, sprinkled with hard work and fun.
What kind of support is there for gardeners?
Classes and workshops are provided at the garden/church site as well as information regarding workshops at other locations. The Garden has partnered with a number of local gardening organizations such as Cobb County’s Wright Nature Center (located adjacent to the church property), Master Gardeners, and Cobb County Extension for training, assistance, and demonstrations on various gardening methods and topics.
