The community garden created by WSG in March 2015 has been well received by the LaGrange Housing Authority community. The garden has not only provides access to fresh food but has become a bonding place for interaction amongst the residents as well as an educational experience for the youth. The community garden has become a healthy and inexpensive activity for the youth that bring them closer to nature and allow them to interact with each other in a socially meaningful and physically productive way.
The Garden Club will even begin offering workshops on gardening tips such as seeding, watering, garden maintenance, etc (please see the monthly newsletter for upcoming dates). The Garden Club meets every Monday at 5:30pm at the Ben Hill Pavilion. For more information on the garden or how to join the garden club please contact Faye Gilliam at (706) 882-6416 ext 48.
