Strong communities can be created through food…
The community garden is three-quarters of an acre and sits adjacent to the farm. It holds approximately 50 plots and is governed by the MAUF Gardening Club. The initial idea for the garden was to provide low-income families, area residents and retired City of College Park workers a place to grow their own vegetables.
Its purpose has grown beyond the initial construct. Today, the community garden serves as an outlet for exercise, creative expression, spiritual application and intergenerational socializing. The garden participants comprise of individuals, churches, families and friend groups. Not to mention, the participants represent the entire Atlanta-area; some traveling as far as Stone Mountain, GA to participate in the garden and its activities.
