Become a Community Gardener

The Fulton County Community Garden program provides the opportunity for individuals and families to experience growing their own fresh vegetables/herbs. This gives people a chance to come together, work, grow and learn. The fee for a garden plot for new/returning gardeners is $35 per plot. 

There are two gardens to serve the county: 

North Fulton Community Garden
7741 Roswell Rd.
Atlanta, GA 30350

South Fulton Community Garden
5645 Mason Rd.
College Park, GA 30349

Please contact the location of your choice for more information.

We are now accepting reservations for our new GROWL Fulton County Demonstration and Teaching Garden! Community members are invited to rent a bed or beds in our space for their gardening project(s). Bed rentals are for one year.

There are four plot sizes available, 50 plots total:

  • 4' x 4' x 12' - $35/year*
  • 4' x 8' x 12' - $45/year*
  • 4' x 12' x 12' - $55/year*
  • 9' x 21/2 x 32' (handicap/wheelchair accessible bed) - $45/year*

*Prices are subject to change

New gardeners who wish to use a garden bed plot shall pay a non-refundable fee for the garden year. The assignment of beds is on a "first-come, first-served basis" and is additionally based on availability. To make a bed reservation, please visit our East Point office location (1757 Washington Road, East Point, GA 30344), or call 404-762-4077.

The GROWL Garden is funded by a grant from the Children, Youth, and Families at Risk (CYFAR) program. The garden is located at our Camp Fulton-Truitt office at 4300 Herschel Road, College Park, GA 30337. Thank you to the hard work of our Fulton Master Gardeners and community volunteers for the creation and maintenance of this garden!

Fulton County Garden Rules:

  1. Each gardener is responsible for the maintenance and upkeep of their garden plot. Watering, weeding, harvesting, and any other garden related maintenance are all the responsibility of the gardener. Gardeners may arrange for other gardeners to water their plots.
  2. Tools will be made available for use during the regularly scheduled work time each week. A limited amount of equipment (tools and hoses) will be available in the GROWL garden storage bn for use during non-scheduled garden work hours. Regularly scheduled work times will be posted on the garden bulletin board.
  3. Each gardener will be given the code to the storage bin for access to tools and watering equipment. Gardeners are responsible for bringing the code each time they work in the garden. Keep storage bins locked at all times and return all tools.
  4. Children are welcome in the garden but must be accompanied by an adult, and must be supervised at all times.
  5. Each gardener must complete a liability waiver form before any work in the garden can begin.
  6. Garden plots should be cared for at least once a week. It is the gardener's responsibility to notify the coordinator if he or she is not able to care for their plot in any given week. If any plot remains unattended for more than three weeks, that plot is subject to reassignment.
