Chattahoochee Nature Center and Kaiser Permanente’s Unity Garden
The Unity Garden at the Chattahoochee Nature Center was established in April 2010 with a generous grant from Kaiser Permanente. The quarter-acre garden has three goals: Production, Donation, and Education.
The Unity garden grows fresh vegetables, fruits, and herbs. The Unity garden uses sustainable gardening practices, found and recycled resources, and focuses on producing healthy plants in healthy soil. The garden is tended by a garden coordinator, as well as dedicated individual volunteers. In addition, charitable organizations, high schools, universities, and corporations have also provided volunteer labor on scheduled work days.
Most of the fresh produce grown in the Unity Garden is donated to the food pantry at North Fulton Community Charities. We deliver fresh vegetables and greens once or twice a week. The Unity garden is in year-round production. To date, we have delivered over 27,000 pounds of fresh produce.

The Chattahoochee Nature Center provides a variety of educational components, including a new summer Grow Camp for children and hands-on training relating to gardening and health.
