Dear Members, Please join me in welcoming the beautiful Mulberry Fields garden to our fold. Read more about how this relationship was formed based on a friendship between two women, our founder Sally Wylde and Candler Park resident, Jesse Bathrick on page 6. With Mulberry Fields, the total number of gardens managed by the Wylde Center now equals five. We certainly are growing! Summer was a time for celebration. We hosted four different events featuring three of our gardens. Photos start on page 8. To see what we have planned for you this fall, turn the magazine over to the back page to view our full calendar. In this issue, we continue the tradition of featuring our site coordinators and the gardens they manage. On page 22, we spotlight our Sugar Creek Garden and Herb Farm with Jen Wassum. It is time to plant your garden with fall vegetables. They are so much more better behaved than the unruly summer crops! If you plant everything suggested on page 24, your fall garden will be bountiful. See you in the garden! Stephanie Van Parys Executive Director

“I love working with my hands, whether it is through my arts and crafts, or by planting seeds in my family garden. I chose to donate some of the proceeds of my earnings from the YEA! event to the Wylde Center because it helps to make Decatur green and it encourages community engagement.” -Kheyal Roy-Meighoo

Mulberry Fields Site Coordinator, Plant Sale Coordinator Mary Jane Leach

Thank you, Kheyal, for your donation! We really appreciate your support.
