Prep Days for the Installation of an Edible Schoolyard in Vine City

The Edible Schoolyard at the Atlanta Preparatory Academy discussed in the previous article, An Edible Schoolyard is Coming to Vine City! is actually becoming a reality.  With the generous sponsorship of the Post HOPE Foundation Inc, partner contractors Chatham Landscape Services Inc and Downey Trees Inc. began work on Tuesday to build out the Sustenance Design LLC site design.

The photos below show some of the work on October 16th and 17th.  All photos by Kwabena Nkromo.
