Community garden planned for Rhodes Jordan Park

Harvest Gwinnett, an initiative of Live Healthy Gwinnett, will host two public meetings to discuss and share ideas about a new community carden at Rhodes Jordan Park, 100 East Crogan St.

“The Harvest Gwinnett Community Garden program will address the need for fresh, healthy options to supplement the dietary needs of seniors and families in our community,” said Lindsey Jorstad, Outreach Manager in Gwinnett County’s Department of Community Services.

Gwinnett officials are collaborating with community partners, including Georgia Gwinnett College, Gwinnett County Sheriff’s Office and city of Lawrenceville, to bring the sustainable community garden program to the park. The Rhodes Jordan Park garden will be the first of three gardens to be installed at Gwinnett County parks over the next two years.

Public meetings will be held 7 to 8 p.m. May 14 and 10 to 11 a.m. May 18 at the Lawrenceville Senior Center, 225 Benson St. The meetings will provide the public an opportunity to see garden plans, ask questions and learn how to get involved.
