The Fort Road Federation coordinates a community garden located at the northeast corner of Jefferson Avenue and Victoria Street. It's just south of I-35E.
The garden has water on-site and is near the Pleasant Avenue Yard Waste drop off site.
Garden with Us
Returning gardeners from the previous season get first choice of plots in the community garden. Garden plots are $35 for the year and include commitments to help with communal spaces. See details below.
The Fort Road Community Garden started as a way to both give gardening opportunities to neighbors and turn a vacant property next to the freeway into a community asset.
