Open to any Johns Creek resident interested in planting and maintaining a small garden plot, Newtown Community Garden features 41 raised beds for planting flowers, vegetables and herbs.
Individuals or groups can sign up for one or more beds, each measuring four feet by eight feet by 12 inches high.
For older gardeners, there are beds that measure 36 inches high that require less stooping.
Located within Johns Creek's Newtown Park (near the north entrance), the Newtown Community Garden is open year round, starting with spring planting in April, from dawn until dusk.
Membership in the Johns Creek Garden Association, which operates and manages the garden, is required along with a small fee.
Each participating gardener provides seeds or plants for their plot. The City of Johns Creek pays for the water usage.
Begun as a community service project by members of the 2010 class of Leadership Johns Creek, the garden was featured that year during the annual conference of the American Community Garden Association.
