Mount Holly Community Garden

Created in November, 2014, our garden recently opened on April 11th of 2015. The Mount Holly Community Garden is a subcommittee of the highly successful Mount Holly Farmers Market. Our garden is located at 126 North Main Street, on the property of First United Methodist Church of Mount Holly, and is 1 block from the heart of our downtown. We have 52 beds, including 4 adaptive beds for special needs of our gardeners.  Our beds are 4’x12’x20” and enriched with wonderful compost from Earth Farms of Dallas.  We are an organic garden and have workshops, cooking demonstrations, and children’s story time planned throughout the summer months.  In our brief history, we have become a gathering place for our gardeners, our citizens, and have daily visitors!  We encourage the “community” aspect as much as we do the garden. People are meeting people, novice gardeners are learning from their fellow gardeners, and friendly competition is normal conversation in the garden.  Our garden is blessed and is quickly becoming a blessing to the Mount Holly Community!
