UGA Extension – Jasper County Agricultural & Natural Resources

Georgia's Deer Capital

Jasper County Senior Center

Jasper County Senior Center is our second site. We actually renovated this site on January 28, 2017. A prior grant had been used to install beds over a decade earlier, but had since fallen into disrepair. The first grant actually purchased fiberglass boxes for the raised bed, which were still in good structural shape. We lifted the beds to a higher level to make it easier for the seniors to work and not have to bend over. There are a total of 8 raised beds at this site. The seniors installed the first planting here March 16. These beds currently have many different vegetable and herbs planted in them.

March 15, 2017     Piedmont Academy FFA members painted the entire beds, giving them a much needed facelift.
