Community Garden

‘Community’ always in season at Harvest Farm

Georgia’s largest organic community garden has really taken root at White Street Park. There’s consistently a waiting list for the garden’s 76 plots. Harvest Farm is part of the City of Suwanee’s newest park, White Street Park, which also features a red barn that functions as an educational/community center, natural outdoor amphitheater, and looping trail.

Harvest Farm plots were constructed in spring 2010 using volunteer muscle. The community garden is managed by a creative, energetic, citizen-based board.

The Orchard at White Street

Featuring a fully functional orchard that will be open to the community and public, the Orchard at White Street Park was designed to provide families with a fun and engaging space that changes through the seasons, encourages creative and self-guided outdoor play, and grows fresh fruit.

The first public orchard in the Southeast, the Orchard at White Street Park also includes lawn areas for relaxation and play, a pavilion, winding pathways, and natural construction children's play features throughout the one acre site.

Like Harvest Farm, the orchard was planted and is maintained by community volunteers. Fruit plantings are based upon donations received. For more information regarding becoming a sponsor of the orchard, click here.
