Harvest Farm is Georgia’s largest organic community garden. The garden features 76 raised beds, which are all tended organically. Harvest Farm opened in April 2010 and is located in Suwanee’s White Street Park. A former farm, White Street Park is located in the Old Town historic district. With a mission of “Growing a Healthier Suwanee”, Harvest Farm also serves as an educational resource for the Suwanee community, offering classes and events related to gardening, organic living, sustainability, and other relevant topics. Harvest Farm is proud to support our surrounding community, donating both food and supplies to local food banks and other charitable organizations. Harvest Farm seeks to provide value to the Suwanee community by: Health: Harvest Farm will provide an opportunity for improved health through exercise and homegrown food. Access: Harvest Farm will provide access to all community members. Raised Awareness: Harvest Farm will provide awareness to the members of how our actions can affect the environment and in turn the community as a whole, as well as the importance of greenspace. Valuable in Community Enrichment: Harvest Farm will foster volunteerism, cooperation, diversity, and family activities. Engage the Community with Education: Harvest Farm will provide educational opportunities to enhance our knowledge of organic gardening, health and nutrition, and being environmentally aware. Sustainability: Harvest Farm will be organic and encourage sound decisions in all day-to-day practices, as well as being aware of how we impact our environment. Time Spent with Family, Community, and Nature: Harvest Farm will encourage everyone to take time out of our hectic lives to spend in the outdoors and regenerate.
