Community Garden Info
About Our Garden
Started in 2006, our garden has 32 plots (and a waiting list) and is part of Park Pride's network of community gardens. The garden is purely organic - no pesticides.
Contact Kevin McCauley at kevin@BHNP.org for more information or to be added to the waiting list.
The Blue Heron Community Garden is located in the former sewer tunnel shaft site with entrances on Roswell Road.
Blue Heron Totem
We have a new piece of art especially built for the Preserve and installed at the Community Garden! On your next visit stop by and see this beautiful sculptural piece, donated by local artist, Sally Eppstein.
Also, Sally has just taken on a new role with us and is our new Art Director. She will be trying to bring more outside art installations to the Preserve and will help to coordinate shows in the Gallery.
Welcome Sally, and thank you for your gift!
Community Garden Workday: Fruit Trees!
On 2/9/13, volunteers helped with final prep in the orchard for our new fruit trees that arrived on 2/23. An auger was rented to dig the holes for the apple, pear and paw paw trees. We then amended the soil with compost we produced on site.
Thanks go out to the group of Holy Innocents and North Atlanta High School students who came to fulfill their community service requirement for school. They were a big help prepping the fruit orchard, replacing signage at our information kiosk and weeding and spreading pine straw in our flower and blueberry beds.
Also a big thanks to Molly Harrington who organized the group and hopes to come out again at future workdays. Thanks Molly!
