Harvest Farm at White Street Park is a community garden that was started last spring in Suwanee, GA. The garden has 76 plots but has become so popular that there is now a waiting list reaching into next year. A few weeks ago I photographed the gardens for the Gwinnett Daily Post to illustrate this growing popularity.
