How does our garden grow?

The seed that sprouted into the New Albany Community Garden has produced much more than seasonal bounties of fruits and vegetables. It’s yielded increasing knowledge about gardening and the health benefits of growing your own food.

Established in 2011 with just 16 raised garden plots, our Community Garden continues to grow and improve each year.
