At the January 2011 Council-Staff retreat, the Cary Town Council discussed community gardens as one of the attributes of a remarkable community. Currently the Town of Cary has two different community garden programs for our citizens. We also support dozens of community garden programs at area schools, churches and other public locations through our Spruce Program's tool lending opportunities. Community gardens help preserve and protect the environment and promote a healthy and sustainable lifestyle.
We hope you'll join us in the garden to take a stroll, volunteer for a work day, or rent a plot to grow your own vegetables!
