We are located on Vandora Springs Road, adjacent to St. Christopher’s Episcopal Church. Garner Grows leases the land at St. Christopher’s and the Church affiliates with the garden, but all garden business and active gardening are handled by garden members. If you are coming to see us or work, please be advised the parking lot is off Lakeside Drive.
Located conveniently near downtown Garner, the Garner Grows Urban Community Garden is a communal space that provides access to land, education and resources to learn and grow food in an environmentally sustainable manner. We created a local food system where we are able to produce nutritious food with affordable annual dues ($30 per household). The garden is based on a Share the Harvest work program. This allows members (novice or expert) to grow produce and flowers, as well as their gardening skills. The garden also promotes a positive and sustainable environment for residents and neighbors to work together. The garden may also function as a living laboratory for the students of Garner area schools and a model of sustainable practices at the community level. We have a goal to donate approximately 10% of the food grown to local Garner food pantries and soup kitchens.
