An idea that was planted just a couple of years ago sprouted first into a plan, then a full-grown reality in White Street Park in Suwanee's Old Town district. The Harvest Farm Community Garden, an intelligently planned and artistically pleasing seven-acre plot of land that used to be known as the Williams farm, is bursting with color -- flowers, vegetables, herbs and dirt so rich you can smell it. Smiling faces can also be found there at just about any time of day. Photo slide show inside
