[ARCHIVED] City to cut ribbon on new community garden

For Immediate Release
Date: March 24, 2014

Mayor Edna B. Jackson, District 4 Alderwoman Mary Ellen Sprague and other City officials will join members of the Midtown Miracle Community Garden at 11:30 a.m. Monday, March 31, for a dedication and ribbon cutting ceremony for Savannah’s newest community garden, located at East 64th and Abercorn streets.

The Midtown Miracle Community Garden is the latest garden launched through the City of Savannah’s Community Garden Initiative, which works with citizens to transform vacant, City-owned properties into contributing sources of fresh produce and neighborhood gathering places.

The Midtown Miracle Community Garden was started by Carol Greenberg, Creative Director for the non-profit Morningstar Cultural Arts Group. The garden’s goal is to provide fresh fruits, vegetables, and herbs to America’s Second Harvest Community Food Bank.

The City of Savannah recognizes that community gardens are a valuable investment in our neighborhoods. They contribute to healthy initiatives, community development, environmental awareness, positive and social interactions, and community education. The City is dedicated to work with neighborhood residents, established organizations, and groups who wish to plan their own community garden project or participate in an existing Savannah Community Garden.

The Midtown Miracle Community Garden will be the third garden started through the City of Savannah Community Garden Initiative. Another three are in the construction phase. For more information on how to start a garden in your neighborhood, go to www.savannahga.gov/garden.
