City to help establish community gardens

Grow Your Own

City will help residents establish community gardens

City of Fayetteville and the Fayetteville Community Garden Coalition committee in conjunction with the Washington County Extension Service are working to establish a network of community gardens.

Citizens will work together to create community gardens by participation in garden planning and garden development, which includes site selection, garden design, construction, planting and harvesting. The gardens can include either vegetable or flower gardens or both.


Those interested can meet with the committee at 5:30 p.m. Mar. 5 at the Walker Room of the Fayetteville Public Library.


For information contact Lisa Netherland of the Fayetteville Parks and Recreation Department at 444-3467.
