The garden will be located at 424 North Ninth Street, along Moore's Creek Linear Park. Plots will be assigned on a first come first serve basis and will be free to the public.
Community gardens offer a wide range of benefits from providing fresh fruits and vegetables, an opportunity to learn new skills, meet new people, reduce stress, and are a chance for children to learn where food comes from and get involved in their community.
