Fayetteville Community Garden now has a community garden, a 5 acre tract of land with approximately 100 plots available to citizens for planting vegetables, flowers and herbs. The concept of community gardening is very simple; patrons rent space and FCPR supplies garden boxes, compost and water. The garden is organic in nature therefore no chemicals or synthetic herbicides, insecticides, fungicides or fertilizers will be allowed. Plots are raised beds approximately 20 ft. by 20 ft. Gardening is a wonderful activity for all ages and can be physically and mentally engaging. The potential benefits are endless. Plots may be rented for $25, with the option to renew Jan. of each year. For rental information contact FCPR administrative office at (910) 433-1547.
