Saint David Street Community Garden

The mission of the St. David Street Community Garden is to strengthen our community and foster self-sufficiency, good health, and interaction among the people of Tarboro by providing education and gardening space for food production and sustainable gardening practices.

Any group or individual can rent a 10 foot x 15 foot garden plot for $10. Gardeners are responsible to water and weed their plots and could utilize their produce as they see fit. Their bounty could be used to feed themselves, their friends and family or they can donate to a group in need or sell it at the Farmers Market. Gardeners provide their own garden tools. Participants are encouraged to participate in fundraising efforts, and pitch in with maintaining the common areas of the garden. The Garden is to remain as sustainable and organic as possible; no chemical fertilizers or pesticides are allowed.
