Nanking cherries near Freedom Park
It’s the best time of year! The season is fresh, the weather is great, and all variety of flower smells are on the air. Serviceberries are starting to peek out and the characteristic purple stain of mulberries is showing up on roadways and sidewalks all over the city.
We’ve got our first two picks of the season coming up: this Sunday at 11am at Centennial Park in downtown Atlanta, and a weekday next week (TBD) at Freedom Park. Please come on out and join us! Both locations are family-friendly and easily accessed by bike or public transportation.
We got a new shed!! Come and check it out tomorrow at Doghead Farm 10am-12pm and help us harvest the veggies that have survived the cold.
Feeling cold and wet on this dreary day? Good news! Saturday, January 17 promises a high of 60 degrees and sunshine all day. What better way to spend a warm-ish, beautiful winter day than at Dog Head Farm?!
