Snellville Community Garden Award

Led by our own GCMGA Member and Garden Manager, Wes Nettleton, the Snellville Community Garden was recently awarded $1,500 from the 2020 Food Well Alliance Community Garden.    Wes is quoted as saying “We are extremely appreciative to the Food Well Alliance for their financial backing to community gardens throughout the Atlanta metro area.” “Through this effort we can support the local area and expand our opportunities to educate both young and old about the environment.”

Wes’s team includes Lucy Nettleton and Martha Whitman, also GCMGA members…… Congratulations to all.  Please read the entire article at https://www.snellville.org/community-garden-snellville-gets-1500-boost-from-food-well-alliance?fbclid=IwAR14Lq0cr4qpo2ems4kUn-3UX7Sih7ph0S-ERCgRqXVE4l8oYQTSyKZEYTc and you can learn more about the garden at http://www.snellvillecommunitygarden.com/

 

Great Georgia Pollinator Census

Many of our members participated August 23 and 24th counting pollinators all over the county.  We had great fun figuring out which pollinator we were looking at… and we sure met some nice folks too.  We’re looking forward to hearing the results and already planning for next year!

Need Seeds?

Two years ago, some of our Master Gardeners came up with a different way to share seeds with our fellow gardeners.  GCMGA members, Jackie Kujawa, Jeff Hicks, Carole Teja and Becky Wolary worked together to add this unique set of shutters to display packets at our local Gwinnett County Extension Office.  Over this period of time, members added to the offerings and helped themselves… we’ve seen the shutters full, and near empty.  This has been fun way to share heirloom seeds or extra seeds that we all seem to end up with.

2019 Annual Plant Sale

THANK YOU!!!!!!! to all who came to our annual plant sale on Saturday, April 27th, at the Lilburn City Hall Parking Lot.  We had wonderful  native plants, perennials and annuals, vegetables and herbs and of course, yard art!  Master Gardeners were on hand to answer any questions.  Special appreciation goes to our co-Chairs Lynda and Susan and to the Garden Shed Chair Linda!  We look forward to seeing you next year!
