Here on Zonolite, we have a diamond in the rough called Nickel Bottom Community Garden – over the past few years it’s gone from a mucky blight to a designed greenspace connected to a creekside trail that goes all the way to Lindbergh Station. It’s become a draw for people and creatures alike. Yesterday a family of 6 were stomping trough the field with butterfly nets and bug carriers. A couple weeks ago a family of deer were nestled into the tall grass, near the small pond. Seeing this activity is heartening, and the new plantings by Boy Scouts and Trees Atlanta are taking root and blooming. These kinds of projects are popping up all over Atlanta, being recognized, and most importantly being utilized by the residents of the city. Visit the Nickel Bottom website.
Nickel Bottom Community Garden is part of the larger development by Southfork Conservancy that has recently received recognition from the Atlanta Urban Design Commission.
