It’s amazing what a bunch of volunteers can accomplish during a morning of working together!


On March 5th, members of and volunteers from the Augusta Rescue MissionAugusta Area Dietetic Internship, and Augusta Locally Grown built 22 raised beds for the Community Garden at With wood donated by Howard Lumber, the crew got started early, measuring, cutting, and assembling  eleven 4×4 foot and eleven 8×4 foot beds.


The ground needed some leveling, so out came the rakes and shovels.


A small harvest of kohlrabi and lettuce made room for the new beds. Once the beds were in place, leveled, and aligned with one another, they were filled with organic soil from Bricko Farms. This community garden is registered as an organic garden and is overseen by Angel Newman of Angel Veggies. Angel grows food to sell to local restaurants and works with members to care for the garden and teach good gardening practices.



The first seeds have been planted! Contact Angel ( ) if you would like to be involved, learn more about gardening, and grow your own food at

One for learning and prototyping, and one for coworking and business incubation. Our membership comes from a wide variety of backgrounds that all consider themselves some measure of hacker, maker, and doer.
