The Community Garden, begun in 2010, is a three-season garden, tended spring through fall. The garden has been tended by vested volunteer gardeners from Grace Covenant Church and from the community. The garden volunteers are organized into 4 teams, each working every other week either on a Wednesday or Saturday morning.
About 75% of the vegetables produced are donated to community organizations that serve our neighbors unable to afford fresh vegetables and in need of better nutrition. In addition to the garden at Grace Covenant Church, the gardeners often grow potatoes and cabbage with Anthony Cole’s family at Jasperwood Farm in Leicester.
This garden is located on the grounds of Grace Covenant Presbyterian Church,
789 Merrimon Avenue, in north Asheville.
