Community Classes - Farm Chastain


The UGA Extension in Fulton County and North Fulton Master Gardeners conduct classes to provide up-to-date horticultural programs to the community.

Join us at Farm Chastain in the Chastain Park Conservancy, 4001 Powers Ferry Rd., Atlanta, GA 30342. Farm Chastain is an urban farm used for teaching and growing food to donate to Good Samaritans in Atlanta. If produce is available, class attendees will also be able to take something home! There is one raised bed for the use of the master gardeners which will also be used as a "hands on" teaching tool when appropriate.

All classes are free and open to the public. Classes begin at 10am. For more information or to RSVP, email Rosie Davidson,
