Harvest Community Garden

HCG produceIn April 2012, Redeemer Evangelical Covenant Church built Harvest Community Garden in partnership with Keep Carrollton Beautiful.  It is now a member of Community Gardens of Carrollton, its parent 501c3 organization.

Its purpose is to grow organic produce and donate half of the yield to a local food pantry.

The mission of Harvest Community Garden is to enable people in the Carrollton area to:

  • Learn how to grow produce using organic practices
  • Have garden space that might not be available to them (e.g. apartments, assisted living centers)
  • Feed the hungry – We donate at least half of the harvest to the food pantry at Christian Community Action (CCA).
  • Foster a sense of community as people make connections with one another
  • Provide service and volunteer opportunities using the community garden as the focus

HCG winterIn order to provide a sustainable community garden opportunity for citizens of Carrollton, without regard to their demographic or socioeconomic position, the plot rental cost is kept low.  Full plots are only $40 per year and half plots are $20/year.  Tools, soil, water, and gardening education are all free.

We have 24 plots (4’ x 20’ raised beds), an asparagus bed, black berries, and a butterfly friendly xeriscape garden.  Our storage shed houses many garden tools and supplies, which are available to gardeners and volunteers.  We also have a rainwater collection system, as well as an irrigation system.

We currently have new 10 plots that are open for adoption.

We are still working on finishing our Phase 2 expansion project.  We want to build a fence, level the shed, and install a sitting are.

Volunteer today!
