A variety of produce grows in Rock Eagle’s pioneer garden.

EATONTON, Ga. — Ever wonder where your food comes from? Find out at Rock Eagle as guests are invited to learn about the basics of planting and growing a garden. This event leads guests through the Rock Eagle pioneer garden where  seasonal fruits and vegetables are grown year-round. Instructors will share everything needed to know about starting a own garden and harvesting your fresh fruits and veggies.

Before Rock Eagle was a 4-H center crops covered the ground as far as the eye could see. The pioneer garden replicates what a typical mid-1800s garden looked like and what would grow in it.

Gates will open at 10 a.m. and the program will begin promptly at 10:30 a.m. Advanced registration is required.For more information call Anna Nolan at 706-484-4838 or email at annan@uga.edu. This program is appropriate for all ages and costs $5 per person.
