What is the Troutman Community Garden?
The Troutman Community Garden is a space to grow organic food in a sustainable way. Unlike other community gardens, our beds and berm are collectively tended and harvested. We need YOUR help to grow our organic garden year round!
A large part of what is harvested will be donated to Help Ministries of Troutman, providing this local food pantry with much-needed fresh produce. The Troutman Community Garden reflects our town's commitment to community and service.
Our mission is to bring people together from the entire community to grow abundant, healthy food- "Tend,Grow, Eat, Share."
