We would like to see a community garden in every local park.
CGHC oversees five beautiful community gardens throughout Henry County. This would not be possible without the wonderful support of our members and community partners.
Our 10,000 square foot plant-a-row garden is located at the Cubihatcha Outdoor Education Center in Locust Grove, Georgia. It’s harvest is grown solely to help the needy in Henry County. We plant both spring and winter gardens. The garden is generously tended by local volunteers.

The gardeners focus on growing nutritious food and plant a wide range of seeds and transplants; some heirloom plants are grown depending on the gardeners’ preference. All visitors to Heritage Park are encouraged to visit and enjoy this beautiful space.

Hooten Street garden is for use exclusively by residents of the City of McDonough Housing Authority on Hooten Street. It is not a public garden.
This special location is situated in a park-like setting with benches and picnic tables; perfect for socializing and impromptu gatherings. Both spring and winter gardens are cultivated by the residents that grow these vegetables for their own table. This location has twelve raised beds. Playing in the dirt couldn’t be more relaxing!
This garden open to anyone in the community. It offers 32 gardening plots and is located on the site of Wesley Way United Methodist Church on John Wesley Way in McDonough. We also maintain a large Helping Harvest Garden at this site from which produce is grown and donated to feed the hungry.
