Harvest Guidelines: Every time you work in the garden on an official workday you are allowed to take a share of the harvest that day. The garden will collect an annual membership of $30 from each member household. The membership fee amount remains low in order to encourage participation of low-income households in sustainable living and gardening. Members are expected to work at least 4 hours a month to qualify for a share the harvest. If you’d like to join or donate online you can do so here.
The garden operates through shared garden plots. Gardening with a group allows for a larger variety and yield. Specific vegetables and layout are designed each year depending on share the harvest members and may alter from year to year. All members participate in planting and maintenance of shared garden plots and overall garden infrastructure and tasks. As part of this garden membership we have a goal of approximately 10% of the food grown to be donated to local Garner food pantries and food kitchens.
