Community gardens springing up around the county

PAULDING – It is good news to hear that the First Lady is taking the initiative to plant a garden at the White House, but it is equally exciting to hear that several communities in Paulding County are planting community gardens.

They will be about the same size as the one at the White House, but in various locations around Paulding County. The community gardens began last year when Tim Collardey from Flint, Mich., visited Nothing But Nature Organic Farms in Fort Brown. Collardey proposed and went to work on a “victory garden” next to Kircher’s Flowers in Defiance.

Some people may remember when Eleanor Roosevelt planted a victory garden at the White House during World War II.
