Educational Raised Vegetable Beds

This page is dedicated to our educational raised vegetable beds that have been placed around Monticello. We currently have three active sites:

As you’ll see from our photos, recipients of each bed are completely involved in installing the bed and plants. Once the bed is installed it us up to the recipients to care for and maintain the beds, and participating in the installation  helps build ownership for the recipients.

These beds have been made possible through grants from USDA-NRCS, and facilitated by Upper Ocmulgee River RC&D Council, Inc. A special thanks to our friends Ellis Lamme and Don Wardlaw with UOR RC&D, without their dedication and interest this wouldn’t have been possible.
