Community Gardens

We are accepting reservations for our Community Gardens! Fulton County Cooperative Extension manages two gardens throughout the county.  Community members are invited to rent plots in our space for their gardening project(s). 

Bed rentals are for one year. New gardeners who wish to use a garden bed plot shall pay a non-refundable fee for the garden year. The assignment of beds is on a "first-come, first-served" basis and is based on availability.

Thank you so much to our hard-working Fulton County Master Gardener Extension Volunteers and other community members who maintain and help manage these gardens.
