Decatur’s Kitchen Garden

Decatur’s Kitchen Garden is a unique garden space for refugee and immigrant growers, led by Global Growers in collaboration with the City of Decatur. The garden currently offers 36 large community growing plots for international families, most of whom came to Atlanta as refugees.

I wanted to start my garden here in Atlanta, because when I was in Bhutan my father, brothers sisters and mother all dreamed of being a farmer and I was also very interested in learning. In my garden I have potatoes, tomatoes, pumpkins, onions and cucumbers. There are so many people that meet here, working together, helping each other and sending love. We are very excited for this garden.
