Waynesville Community Garden
The Waynesville Community Garden builds upon the foundation of the community to promote healthy lifestyles and education on gardening; to have youth and community members working to sustain the garden to provide fresh vegetables for their peers and community.
The Community Garden allows afterschool programs, community groups, and individuals to adopt a plot to grow crops. The community garden also hosts educational events to teach children agricultural techniques and the importance of healthy food.
The Community Garden has four goals:
- Facilitate youth and community members with opportunities for service learning
- Supply community members with an area to learn to garden for themselves
- Provide educational opportunities for students and the community
- Continued upkeep and coordination of the garden for years to come
The Waynesville Community Garden is currently accepting applications for plots. Plots are provided for community members at no cost. Application can be downloaded here. All Waynesville Community Garden participants must have a Waynesville R-VI School District Volunteer Background Form on file.
The Waynesville Community Garden will open for planting on March 2, 2019.
