Coming in the Spring of 2021, The Grow Jackson Community Garden Network. Together with The City of Jackson, local partner organizations including The Jackson YMCA and Together We Can Make a Difference, and corporate and private donors, Grow Jackson will begin to plant community gardens in our neighborhoods. Additionally we are planning on operating a community greenhouse. Gardens will be in currently unused city lots, in spaces provided by other organizations, and in area parks and public spaces.
These gardens will provide produce for our fresh food distribution program. Additionally the products of these gardens will be available in the Jackson Farmers Market at the Grow Jackson Garden Stand. The gardens will also help to source Fresh Food Friday.
