GROW Jamestown is a community-wide partnership to promote gardening, community food security, landscaping, and other greening activities throughout Jamestown. Collectively, these efforts promote neighborhood beautification and revitalization, healthy lifestyles, civic engagement, and the productive reuse of vacant lots and underutilized spaces.
Focused on building community through the power of growing, the GROW Community Gardens are open to individuals and community organizations for seasonal planting. All gardeners have the opportunity to learn from one another, as well as participate in educational opportunities focused on best gardening practices, composting and community food security.
Available at a low-cost, plots are open from April-October. Gardeners from beginner to expert are welcome!
