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
We have a plot on stilts and one shaded plot still open for the season.
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.
