The recent rain has been very good for the Georgia Mountain Food Bank as the seeds from its first community garden begin to grow and flourish. The food bank has considered the idea of having a community garden outside of its new facility on Calvary Industrial Drive in Gainesville since the building was constructed last year. The opportunity for the garden came when the Gainesville Jaycees asked what kind of physical labor they could offer to help the nonprofit.
