CUB CREEK COMMUNITY GARDEN
Our community garden is maintained through the active participation of the gardeners themselves. Fresh gardens allow our citizens to grow their own food which provides fresh produce and plants into their everyday lives for healthier living. Other benefits are satisfying labor, self-reliance, connection to the environment, the opportunity for multigeneration and cross-cultural connections, neighborhood improvement, and a sense of community.
The gardener leases a garden plot each season which may or may not be the same from year to year. Handicap raised beds have been added as well. Cub Creek Community Garden’s goal is to be a place that invites neighbors, friends, and families to communicate and relate through a shared experience.
Through the aid of the Master Gardeners, Cub Creek Community Garden offers tips and advice on how to make your own garden plot better, whether you are a beginner or expert. What is a Master Gardener and would you like to become a Master Gardener? To find out how click here.
Besides the gardening activities, other advantages include a series of special work days, email updates on garden conditions, and having Master Gardener’s to provide a helping hand. Where else could you get a deal like this!
If you would like to have an opportunity to participate in this experience, you will need to complete a garden application. Please click button or pick up the application and pay fees to the Wilkes County Extension before April 15th each year. We look forward to seeing!
