Our tagline is “A Giving Garden from the Heart of Cary.” We are a true “community” garden; we do not have individual plots. Everything is shared, with our garden members and with those in need. We use raised beds and drip irrigation (well water!) to get the most out our garden, but we don’t use chemicals! We are in our 4th season of organic gardening, and are always looking for new members. We keep our fees low ($10 per family per year), and all ages and abilities are welcome!
