PLEASE NOTE:
The Community Garden will be closed for the 2021 season! We apologize for the inconvenience. 

 

Why Garden?

Research has shown that community gardens help individuals and families connect, reduce stress, increase physical activity, share quality time in the outdoors, improve nutrition, and even save up to $1000 per year on grocery expenses.

Community gardens; especially military community gardens are special. A military community garden; in addition to all the expected benefits, can provide a sense of belonging, or "roots" – despite our nomadic military lifestyle. Research shows that military gardens can create a real sense of belonging and minimize turmoil associated with deployments and other long separations (Bowen, et al. 2003). Having a dedicated place to support growth (literally and figuratively) is a benefit, especially when considering space constraints in housing, dorms, or apartments.

The Fort Gordon Community Garden is a chemical-free, bird, bee and kid friendly garden. We are a teaching garden for Fort Gordon Child & Youth Services (CYS) programs. We also have support programs for all new gardeners and are a place to share garden tips and advice for every level of gardening experience.

The Fort Gordon Garden Club meets the 3rd Thursday of each month at 5 p.m. in the Fort Gordon Woodworth Consolidated Library. The club will also meet 1 Saturday each month at the community garden for special garden topics and practical workshops.

  • Plots are 9 x 18 feet.
  • Registration for plots will be available to previous year's gardeners the 1st Monday in February, and will open to the general public the 1st Monday in March.
  • The garden opens the 1st Saturday in March.
