Posted Mar. 27th, 2017
Vegetables aren’t the only things that grow in the Garden of Hope in Clarksville. Hope grows there too. The mission of the program is to grow and distribute fresh produce to local food banks and help feed hungry people in our community. Giving gardens like the Garden of Hope provides local residents opportunities to make a difference and connect to the environment. Site 1 is located in the vacant lot across from 109 Canterbury Drive, Clarksville, TN 37043. This location is in the neighborhood behind Barksdale Elementary School (off Madison Street and about a block from Coy-Lacy Park).

All gardeners or organizations are required to complete an application form to adopt a plot. A $25 deposit and a plot fee of $25.00 per 10×10 plot is due by May 15, 2017.

• The $25 deposit shall be returned to adoptee at the end of the gardening season if the plot is maintained and cleaned up according to the guidelines. If a plot is abandoned or neglected during the growing season, the deposit will not be refunded.

So, if you need a place to garden or just want to volunteer please contact Montgomery County Extension Agent Karla Kean at 931-648-5725 or kkean@utk.edu
