About the Wylde Center



In
1997, an idea took root in the Oakhurst area of Decatur, Ga.  Neighbors Sally Wylde and Louise Jackson
envisioned a community garden where children could learn about the natural
world and enjoy hands-on gardening activities. 
With the purchase of a half-acre of property at the corner of South McDonough St.
and Oakview Road,
the Oakhurst Community Garden
was born.  From this small seed of an
idea, the Oakhurst
Community Garden
blossomed and grew, and quickly became one of the area’s most popular gathering
spaces, offering individual garden plots, educational programs, a destination
for school field trips and other youth groups and social activities for all
ages.



Today,
supported by members, foundations, corporations and donors, the non-profit has
been re-named the Wylde
Center to honor its
co-founder and to better encompass its expanded range of properties and
programs.  The Wylde Center
oversees four distinctive greenspaces, mangers a year-round educational program
for all ages, hosts social events and supervises the Decatur City Schools’ Farm
to School Program.  Staff and volunteers
engage children, families and individuals in activities designed to develop creative
skills in sustainable urban living, organic gardening, health and
nutrition.  The non-profit has grown from
a Decatur-based organization to one that is providing environmental educational
services for metro Atlanta.  Despite its robust growth, the Wylde Center
has stayed true to its original mission of cultivating vibrant greenspaces for
everyone to enjoy and inspiring communities of environmental stewards.  www.wyldecenter.org
