North DeKalb Mall Community Garden Looking for Donors

Organizers eventually hope the garden will become a seasonal farmer's market.

I could be wrong, but I get the impression that most readers are unaware of the cool work being done at the North DeKalb Mall Community Garden lately. It's a growing enterprise run by the mall, and organizers hope it might eventually turn into a seasonal farmer's market, according to a recent story in CrossRoads News.

From the story: 

The garden, which had a trial run last year, has expanded and will now offer 250-square-foot Community plots and 1,000- to 1,500-square-foot Market plots.

Taylor Dozier, the mall’s general manager, said much of the plowing, cover crop seeding, and path laying to create more plots on Orion Drive in Decatur have been completed and plots are now available for productive farming.

The garden’s goal is to create a seasonal farmers market that includes outside vendors from the community.
