Community Garden VolunteersThe Stone Mountain Community Garden is located at VFW Park and is operated in partnership with the City of Stone Mountain and the DeKalb Extension and Georgia Master Gardeners in DeKalb County. The Stone Mountain Community Garden (SMCG) was founded in 2009 and has been at its current location since 2011. The SMCG consists of 50 individual garden plots which are 4-feet by 12-feet in size, a composting site, herb garden, wildflower patch, and a food pantry garden. The individual garden plots are just that, plots managed and gardened by individuals. The food pantry garden is managed by our Master Gardener partners and volunteers, all produce grown in this area are then donated to the local food pantry. In the past year, the garden has donated over 1,000 pounds of produce to the food pantry.
