Elm Street Gardens began as a vegetable garden located behind a historic house in Sparta, Georgia. The gardens were begun in 2004 as an experiment to see if the Curreys, the owners of Elm Street Gardens, could grow the vegetables they wanted to eat throughout the year. The gardens have continued to expand in size, and become more productive per square foot as the soil continues to improve. Two acres around the house are being farmed with outdoor beds as well as ten hoop houses and a heated seed house for starting transplants.
