Fort Road community garden plots available

Plots at our Fort Road Community Garden are now open to neighbors in the West 7th Community. Registration started in mid-march for plots for new gardeners, which are offered on a first-come, first-served basis until the 25 slots are filled. 

Garden plots are $40 for the year and include commitments to help with communal spaces. The garden has water on-site and is near the Pleasant Avenue Yard Waste drop off site. 

The Fort Road Federation coordinates the community garden, located at the northeast corner of Jefferson Avenue and Victoria Street just south of I-35E. 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.
