The Cabbagetown Community Garden was completed in the summer of 2010 and is located at 162 Berean Avenue. The creation of the garden was a combined effort of the Cabbagetown community, the City of Atlanta and Park Pride. The garden is the first community garden in Atlanta to be built on city owned property and not located on parkland. With the help of city council, Park Pride and CI, the city passed legislature to allow such a community effort to be realized.
After several volunteer workdays in which the community removed an existing concrete slab, designed and built our cedar fence, and tilled and built the beds, the community garden was completed. All volunteers for the garden came from the neighborhood, further demonstrating the love our neighborhood has for coming together and making our little piece of Atlanta a more beautiful place.
The garden has 28 plots and over 30 members. The season starts and ends on March 1st of every year. There is a $25 membership fee each year for a plot. The garden is completely full for this season but if you would like to be on the waitlist for next season, then please contact the membership chair. The garden document page contains administrative documents for the garden as well as helpful gardening tips for Georgia. Please join us on social media for more pictures.
