If you choose a prebuilt 4'x8' bed add $125 (one time cost) to the above $60 annual plot space fee.
We use ORGANIC planting practices. You must use organic soil, fertilizer, pesticides, herbicides, etc. The only exception, due to local market conditions, is that members may use conventional seeds and transplants, although when they’re available, organic seeds and transplants are preferred. If you build a raised wooden bed, you must use UNTREATED wood.
We require YEAR-ROUND CULTIVATION. You must keep your plot and the area around it well-tended. If you’re not growing a crop or ornamentals, you must plant a cover crop. Our climate is great for cool season gardening and many of our members grow fall and winter crops. You really can grow food year-round in Georgia.
Members VOLUNTEER TIME towards general garden upkeep and garden projects. We strongly encourage all members to join a committee or a garden team.
