Earth Day in Decatur's Oakhurst Community Garden!

A mere 40 years ago, the first Earth Day was proudly declared in April and, this year, the City of Decatur and the Oakhurst Community Garden invite you out for the city’s official Earth Day celebration! If you didn’t make it out for the spring plant sale in the garden last week, now is your chance to explore the blooming garden in the weekend sunshine (I ended up going to the plant sale twice last weekend, once to sneak in early so I didn’t miss out on the Romaine lettuce this year and another time to take friends back!).
