COMMUNITY GARDEN PROJECTS

 

Tarrant Area Food Bank had partnered with Tarrant County Public Health to implement Community Gardens in Tarrant County. Public Health has funded the gardens through their Live a More Colorful Life program. TAFB will be responsible for training sites, facilitating garden implementation, and providing continuing support for the gardens in an effort to make them as sustainable as possible.

Learning Garden

The Learning Garden will serve as a demonstration, training, and food production site.

This garden will be used to:

  • Demonstrate different gardening techniques to help gardeners tailor their garden to their agricultural & aesthetic preferences, environmental possibilities, and economical constraints. Styles will include everything from permacultured passive water harvesting  to cinderblock & wooden raised beds to rock keyholes and microclimate-rich spirals.
  • Facilitate community education to empower Food Bank Partner Agencies and other charitable organizations to create their own community gardens. TAFB will host Community Garden Leadership Training several times each year, as well as other educational opportunities across a wide variety of subjects.
