Bluebird Greenhouse at GARC is opening it’s doors again this spring to begin seed starting for ‘Healthy Life Community Gardens’, a local project for local residents and the Fairmont community, facilitated by UGA, City of Griffin and other gardening advocates.
‘Healthy Life Community Gardens’ Staff and Support Team met today to coordinate the seed growing efforts now underway for the new community garden in Griffin. “Plans are to put seedlings in the ground in early March,” states Joe Byrum, Program Assistant, Healthy Life Community Gardens.
“It’s a fun way of learning more about local foods,” states Frank Mason Robinson, Founder of Bluebird CSA, a Community Supported Agriculture program, “we especially like the way it’s bringing local people together. Everyone at the greenhouse today agreed they were honored to be part of this exciting, locally grown, community garden opportunity. It is an uplifting project that community leaders are making possible.”
