After The Flood
Hope's Gardens was set back when the Sept 21, 2009 flood waters came flowing into our gardens and greenhouse. The greenhouse structure still stands, although we lost everything within it's walls. With the help of friends and volunteers we are getting through this event. Organizations, such as: the Peachtree Road Farmers Market, Whole Foods, Slow Foods, Georgia Organics and many individuals gave time, muscle, and financial assistance.
We can't tell you how much we appreciate all of you. THANK YOU!!!!!
As of Fall 2011, we have seen our much loved home razed to the ground and watched our new home rise from the rubble. We were so fortunate to meet a great architect, who was able to listen to our needs, wants and desires and translate that into the perfect place for our family. We have once again started a garden - yielding jalapeños we have being using for our Jalapeño Pesto. The greenhouse is still a work in progress but we have never shied away from hard work. Life is returning to some sense of normalcy as we no longer are moving from place to place.
You can still find Hope's Gardens just about every Saturday morning at the Peachtree Road Farmers Market. When we are lucky enough to have help, we can also be found at one of the many Farmers Markets around town - Marietta Square, Sandy Springs, East Atlanta Village, Grant Park and Brookhaven.
We now have 4 flavors of pesto (Basil, Jalapeño, Sun-dried Tomato and Mint) and new flavor ideas are filling our heads.
Thanks for all the kindness and support our wonderful customers have shown us. We so appreciate it!
