Started in 2004 by town resident Dr. John Wilson on town owned property, the community garden strives to share fresh produce with families in need, provide growing space for the community, and educate all ages on the benefits of growing and eating fresh produce. In addition to the area used for annual vegetable production, the garden maintains a medicinal and native species trail, mushroom forest, and nearly 100 fruit and nut trees and shrubs.
