Highland United Methodist Church Community Victory Garden

We are an organic garden dedicated to sustainable practices and education. At least half of our produce is donated to Plant a Row for the Hungry, and to students in English as a Second Language classes who work in the garden on Wednesdays. Our major workday is Saturday morning. Everybody does everything—there are no assigned plots. We have a garden “lesson” each workday. We also try at least one new crop or technique each season. The garden was started in 2010, under the guidance of Cullen Whitley, horticulturist. His outreach resulted in the “planting” of many more community gardens, which in turn have spawned many more.
