The Cullowhee Community Garden

The Cullowhee Community Garden is a project of the Jackson County Department of Public Health. The garden provides space, tools, and materials for community members to grow produce organically. Each gardener agrees to donate one half of the produce grown in their plot to help our community food relief programs. There is no monetary fee for joining the garden, only the 50% donation.
We hold weekly Community Volunteer Days every Wednesday afternoon until Dusk, and Every Saturday from 9am until 12pm. Common tasks include: weeding, spreading mulch, planting, invasive plant removal, and lots of other fun projects
