Person measuring raised garden bed with squash growing on a trellisUrban Food Forest at Brown Mill Community Garden is a 1-acre agricultural nonprofit located in a food desert within Atlanta, GA, that grows a variety of greens, fruit, beans, herbs, and flowers for neighborhood residents. They received a $3,581 grant to upgrade their watering system with pre-fabricated irrigation grids for 30 of their 39 raised planting beds to conserve water, conserve soil, and improve productivity.

Garden Manager Rosemary W. Griffin told us that they’ve successfully installed their new irrigation grids. These grids are ideal for the square-foot gardening method and will help save on labor and increase production. She also said, “The rain sensor added to the programmable system will aid in the conservation of water by keeping the system off when there has been an adequate amount of rainfall.”
