on Atlanta Sounds

Grant Park resident, Jack Beckford, used to garden quite a bit. The story that he tells here happened years ago when Zoo Atlanta (then the Atlanta Zoo) used to allow him to drive right up and load elephant manure directly into his pickup truck. He's use it as compost in his garden. And while the zoo does not allow Atlanta residents to do this today, he's found other places that do, including at least one Atlanta Police Department that stables horses.
