What  is Lilburn

Community Garden

History

​​


Our Board:

We are a group of individuals from the Lilburn area who are joined together by an interest in gardening. Members "rent" a garden bed for a year and may grow vegetables, fruit or flowers. During growing season (April - October) we offer gardening classes (beginners and experienced folks are welcome) on select Saturdays - check our Facebook page for dates, times and topics. We encourage members to donate any excess produce to Lilburn Co-op. The Board maintains one bed exclusively for the Co-Op. Anyone can tour the garden and enjoy the view but picking produce is exclusive to the families who planted and nourished their gardens.

Established in 2012 with 25 beds, the Lilburn Community Garden has more than doubled in size to 58 beds, including 6 handicapped accessible
easy access beds. We continue our mission of: creating an opportunity for local residents to grow food; cultivating community interaction and fun across all ages, cultures and income levels; providing a learning environment for organic sustainable growing practices; and beautifying downtown Lilburn. Our vision is to grow our community by creating and sustaining a community garden to nourish the body, to nurture the spirit and to encourage learning.​
