More about Mulberry Fields Garden:
Mulberry Fields Garden is a hidden oasis in the heart of the Candler Park neighborhood. Originally the site of an old dairy farm, the land has been kept protected by a band of passionate neighbors and landowners since the late 1990s including Jesse & Richard Bathrick, who officially turned the property into a community garden in 1999. In 2007, the land was placed in a conservation easement securing its continuity as green space and protecting it from development. Now managed by local 501(c)3 non-profit Wylde Center and volunteer committee Friends of Mulberry Fields, the garden is celebrating its 20th year of existence and offers an accessible green space for recreation, environmental education, community building, and organic growing.
