The Oglethorpe University-Brookhaven community garden has a problem. Its current location on university property is slated to become part of the school’s new student center–and breaking ground on the project is scheduled for later this summer.
The garden, a collaboration between Oglethorpe, Oglethorpe Presbyterian Church, Brookhaven Christian Church and St. Martin’s Episcopal School, helps provide food for 30 needy families in the Brookhaven area and needs to be moved to a safer spot on campus, but to do that costs money.
Enter Amy Rentenbach. As Director of Finance and Controller at Oglethorpe, Rentenbach sits on the community garden committee and is part of a group called Crop Mob Atlanta. Crop Mob, which also has presences in Athens and Savannah, helps build community by bringing out volunteers to assist local farmers in doing their work.
