that cultivates growth and improvement…

Community gardens provide fresh fruits and vegetables as well as a sense of community, exercise, and neighborhood improvement. They can be as diverse as its gardeners. The community garden of Tampa Heights is intended for the growth of produce, flowers, and the community….and turns a vacant lot into a beautiful garden.

Flowers grow in flower gardens and vegetables grow in vegetable gardens…and communities grow in community gardens.

    Hi Kitty my son and I met you last year and was coming to tend the garden with The Sigma Beta Club. However we had to stop due to issues. Patrick would like to start a community garden for his organization Angels On Assignment Worldwide, an outreach organization. How does he start.

      Hi Patricia and Patrick. I am still holding that one table top garden for Patrick. He is welcome to come and garden any time. The code at that gate is 7050. It would be best to wait to plant in mid February after threat of frost is past. Please email me at kittwal@aol.com as I check emails frequently.
