The Story of Wimberly's Roots

In 2016, the Winder Housing Authority was selected as a recipient of the Local Foods, Local Places award. Through this initiative, Winder, GA is one of 27 communities nation-wide that received technical assistance to help integrate local food into the City’s community development initiatives. Wimberly's Roots, located within the Wimberly Center, is a direct result of this event. 

The Wimberly Center for Community Development had was established in the abandoned Winder Barrow Middle School, in the Glenwood neighborhood, in part as a result of the 2013 City of Winder's Urban Redevelopment Plan and efforts by the Winder Housing Authority. The Wimberly Center itself has become a catalyst for revitalization efforts and the focus of the Local Foods, Local Places initiative in Winder.​

With a focus on food security, Wimberly's Roots Community Garden and Kitchen was created to address some of the fundamental food and nutrition related challenges facing the surrounding community. The garden provides nutritious food to residents in an area where the availability of and access to nutritious food is currently limited. Please explore our website for more information and to get involved. We hope to see you around the kitchen and garden!
