Want to grow some fresh vegetables and make friends at the same time? Then MIC’s community garden is the place for you! Located at 5178 Floyd Road, the Historic Mableton Community Garden makes plots available each season to area residents. Plot rental costs start as low as $60 per year (just $5 per month) for the smallest plots with larger plots costing more. The fee includes insurance, water, garden events and administrative fees. Organic gardening practices are encouraged, but not required. Complete information about the garden is available at the garden website.
There has been a great deal of community involvement and collaboration to create this wonderful garden and we thank the many groups and individuals who have contributed to the success of the gardens, including Governor Roy Barnes, AARP, Atlanta Community Food Bank, Atlanta Regional Commission, Comcast Cares, the Foodwell Alliance, the Kaiser Foundation, Master Gardener Volunteers of Cobb County, and volunteers from local Girl Scout and Boy Scout troops. For more information, contact Renee Booker, the Garden Leader.
