In conjunction with Food Day, the DeKalb County Board of Health and others are coming together to showcase the innovative urban agricultural activities of our county, with a week of open houses at urban agricultural and garden sites in DeKalb County.  The Dunwoody
Community Garden will be part of this tour.
Our open house will be Monday, October 24, from 2-6 pm. Guides will be present at both the garden and the greenhouse during these times. No tickets needed. Stop by and see what we’re growing.
