Community gardens help preserve and protect the environment and promote living a healthy and sustainable lifestyle. In Cary, we believe they are one of the attributes of a remarkable community. Cary has two primary community garden locations a an urban agriculture and historic preservation site that is open during public events. We also support dozens of garden programs at area schools, churches, and other community locations through our Spruce Program's tool lending program.

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!
