Little Nancy Creek Park Community Garden

We hope you are enjoying the newly installed fence around the Community Garden at Little Nancy Creek Park. All kinds of produce are being planted, and many gardeners are adding creative and practical decor. Be sure to visit the park and see what is growing in the community garden - but please be respectful and leave the fruits and vegetables for the garden plot owners.

Community Garden Installation a Success!


Boyd Johnson helps the Park Pride volunteers
install the new garden

The Little Nancy Creek Park Community Garden opened for business on Friday, November 6, 2007. th From 9-12, 60 volunteers from Park Pride descended upon the ground cleared for the garden.  It was amazing to watch as the raw dirt was covered with raised beds of organic fill dirt, paths of slate chips and the all-important “critter-proof” fence.  The whole garden was completed, except for 2 gates and one sign, in the 3 hour period of time.  Former LNCP park board member Boyd Johnson designed the layout and Park Pride supplied the materials and labor. 

The 20 plots were fully subscribed within 2 weeks.  The Community Gardeners work together on the 21st plot to grow vegetables for local charities such as Buckhead Christian Ministries’ food pantry or the Atlanta Food Bank.

On Saturday, November 21st at 10:30, a Ribbon Cutting opening ceremony of the Community Garden was held and Founding Gardeners participated in the plot-picking draft.

Though all plots have been spoken for, a waiting list is being created and interested persons are encouraged to contact Christy Roberts for more information.

The community garden at Little Nancy Creek Park was awarded a grant through Park Pride that provides materials and expertise toward the installation of a community garden. Community gardens have become a very popular feature at urban parks across the country. The garden at LNCP is no exception as interest for every available plot was quickly received. To help raise the funds necessary to complete this first stage of the garden, a Founding Gardener program was created with 19 sponsorships—one for each available plot. Under the guidance of Christy Roberts, Founding Gardeners were asked to make a $200 contribution to the garden. This allowed them to reserve one of the 19 plots. Each of the names of the 19 Founding Gardeners were drawn randomly to select their preferred plot.

Each gardener will be asked to be a member of the Friends of Little Nancy Creek Park and will pay annual plot rental equal to $1 per square foot of their plot size.

Though all plots have been spoken for, a waiting list will be created and interested persons are encouraged to contact Christy Roberts for more information.
