Garden Smart introduces youth to different elements of starting and maintaining their own garden!
The Children's Community Garden program is back! Sustainable Lakewood is partnering with the City of Atlanta's Office of Parks and the South Bend Center for Arts & Culture to teach students (ages 6 to 12) the basics of gardening in indoor and outdoor classroom settings. The sessions will be on Mondays for one hour from October 3 to December 12. Upon completing the 10 sessions, students are expected to have an entry-level knowledge of gardening to apply at home, school or other places in the community.
The garden was built with grants from Park Pride and the Community Foundation. This program is now sponsored by a grant from the Lakewood Amphitheater Finance Committee.
