Chamblee, GA, March 30, 2015 – by Jenni Heerink, Contributor – The Chamblee Vegetable/Edible Garden Club organized a tour on Saturday, March 28 to investigate developing and organizing a Community Garden.
The day began at Chamblee Middle School, where supporting parent, Amy Granelli, presented their Learning Garden. The school started this project three years ago, with the help of a $10,000 grant from ‘Seeds of Change.’ In this garden, 6th and 7th graders learn about various types of crop growth (commercial, organic and biodynamic). This year, various studies of soil, planting vegetables and herbs are integrated in the STEM curriculum. Ongoing projects local residents can help with include ecology, composting, maintenance and water conservation.
