Ferndale Friendship Community Garden
The award winning Ferndale Community Garden is located south of Pioneer Park near the baseball fields and Star Park. Residents from the greater Ferndale community can rent plots for a low cost and grow their own food. There are 25 garden plots and 10 Hoop house plots for rent to individuals and families. Gardeners form a community that works, learns, and grows together. A special area of the Garden, called the First Fruits Garden, is dedicated to growing food for the Ferndale Food Bank.
In your own garden plot you can:
· Grow nutritious fresh food for your family,
· Learn about organic gardening,
· Reduce your food budget, and
· Have fun and garden with your family!
Plots rent for $20 for the season plus a $10 refundable cleaning deposit. Scholarships are available for those who need assistance with the cost.
For information about obtaining a plot, contact April Bader at FFCGinfo@gmail.com or visit the Ferndale Community Garden website by clicking here.
