Fulton County has been holding geological agriculture workshops, spearheaded by District 5 county Commissioner Marvin Arrington Jr., to help residents in neighborhoods without access to fresh produce grow their own vegetables in tabletop containers that do not require dirt or watering.
According to workshop handouts, gardeners can produce lettuce in 10 to 60 days, beans and peas in seven weeks and spices like parsley and dill in six weeks without transplanting.
Remaining workshops will be Sept. 10 and 17 in Atlanta, Sept. 10 and 24 in East Point and Sept. 17 and 22 in South Fulton. Participation is free. Register at https://bit.ly/2A0FFWM.
