Kirkwood Community Garden gains ground in its fledgling year!

Atlanta and Decatur, I would like to introduce you to the Kirkwood Community Garden and Urban Forest, a five-acre section of land that’s leaving behind its former life as an unofficial dumping ground. The garden itself is already carved out with raised flower beds and space for ample sunshine thanks to the Kirkwood Community Garden volunteers.

Beyond the community garden, paths ramble into the Kirkwood Urban Forest, where dogs and owners enjoy evening walks. While the garden is gaining ground, the Kirkwood volunteers could use helping taming the wildness of these five acres. If you’re interested in clearing, gardening, building, meeting your neighbors, spending some time in the sun, please stop by the garden and ask how you can lend a hand! You can also contact the garden at kirkwood-community-garden+owner@googlegroups.com.

The Kirkwood Community Garden is located at 1807 Dixie Street, Atlanta, 30317 (map it!).
