Brownwood Area Community Garden is a new 22,000 sq.ft. garden in Central Texas. We have 65 20-foot raised beds,each with its own drip irrigation pipes , and a 6,000-gallon rainwater collection system. There is also a shade arbor for an outdoor classroom and socializing, hot and cool composting bins, and a small orchard with fruit trees, pomegranates, and black and blueberries. UPCOMING EVENTS: Spring Festival is April 21, 2012. Other educational events are ongoing throughout the year.
The Garden's primary mission is to provide fresh, naturally grown produce to area food pantries to feed the hungry. The Garden's secondary purpose is to provide space for residents who wish to garden according to natural, chemical-free methods; to provide a venue for education on sustainable gardening practices; and to provide employment and on-the-job training opportunities for low-income workers.
The Garden is located at 1514 Dublin St., behind the Central Texas Opportunities office, in Brownwood. For further information, call 325-641-9029.
