Our garden is a partnership with the community surrounding the Winterfield Neighborhood and the children of Winterfield Elementary. We have 28 10’x10’ plots that are available to rent. The kids have 18 2’x10’ plots that they use for learning about gardening and how to prepare the veggies they grow. The kids, the Garden Buds, meet once a week to work in their plots and harvest their crops. We have a group of volunteers and parents that come help with their plots as well. We have found that the garden is a great way to stay connected to the community and meet new people. We always welcome a friendly face.
