The HCFM’s Community Garden Program assists Spartanburg County organizations in developing, enhancing or maintaining communal vegetable gardens.
Gardens come in many shapes and sizes…
Raised bed gardens are sandbox-sized plots that are built above the ground. Elevated gardens are tabletop-style; perfect for senior s and people using wheelchairs. Traditional in-ground gardens can range from a few square feet to over an acre. Container gardens are great for a small space or busy schedule.
…and have been hugely successful in a variety of settings. HCFM gardens have been implemented in schools, childcare centers, senior centers, neighborhoods, churches, workplaces.
