Here is a great way for even those that rent Atlanta apartments to enjoy fresh home grown vegetables. Clayton County Commissioner Sonna Singleton wants to see residents playing in her district’s community garden. She hopes to see them planting seeds and growing flowers or vegetables. It doesn’t matter if it’s tomatoes, squash, carrots, radishes, tulips or Black-eyed Susans.
The commissioner’s desire is to see gardening bring the community together. Seth Coleman, Singleton’s constituent aide, said the commissioner is inviting residents to sign up for her annual spring Community Garden program. Singleton has organized the garden since 2010 and this year’s planting season will begin in March at the Carl Rhodenizer Recreation Center in Rex.
Residents from Hidden Pines at Tara or elsewhere in Clayton County interested in gardening this year should contact Singleton at 770-477-3213 to get their space.
