This Year’s Scarecrow Entry at ABG

Gwinnett Master Gardener’s Virginia Schofield, Emily Eberhardt and Ruth Kail got together and created “Edgar Allen Crowe” as this year’s entry into the Atlanta Botanical Gardens “Scarecrow’s in the Garden” event, Oct 1st -30th.

Virginia mentioned that he didn’t place this year but he sure is cute and someone liked him a lot because he’s the first scarecrow that you see when you enter the garden!  This is a fun event for the whole family to visit at ABG.  And, say ‘Hey’ to Mr. Crowe while you are there.

McDaniel Farm Park Update

Here are some pictures taken out at McDaniel Farm Park in the garden today.

We harvested about 60#’s of produce to send over to Annandale Village, our Plant-a-row for the Hungry location here in Gwinnett. We now have a total of 395#’s of produce harvested and donated to-date!

The garden is looking great and we have hardly any weeds. It frees up our time to work on other tasks. We’re actually having fun working there on each workday.
