Another Community garden?

Another community garden?

Yes, you guessed it right, it’s that time of year again when a lot of people around Paulding County are planting or have already planted a garden. It is also the time when some communities make a push forward and try to get a community garden planted. The Melrose Community Garden has been a successful story over the past few years as the Melrose United Methodist Church has taken the initiative to get the garden worked, planted and weeded it has produced a bumper crop for the last two years.

The attempts for a community garden in Paulding and Grover Hill have not been that successful. The first garden in Grover Hill produced a small crop while the garden in Paulding went to weeds. Last year it was so dry that we totally lost the garden in Grover Hill and there was not one started in Paulding.
