Thank you for your interest in the Wilkesboro Cub Creek Community Garden. The garden was created in 2011 from a $7,000 grant through the Wilkes County Health Department from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation for Childhood Nutrition, a $1,000 grant from Walmart, Extension plant sale funds, and private contributions. On May 7, 2011, the garden was opened for gardeners to join. In 2017, 47 additional raised beds were completed bringing the total plots available to rent to 55. The Cub Creek Community Garden is full for the season. New gardener registration will begin on January 2nd, 2024 at 8:30 a.m. 

For the 2023 garden season, we have 19 new gardeners and have already produced 3211 lbs. of produce as of September 5th, 2023. Next time you are at Cub Creek Park in Wilkesboro, stop by and see all the lovely vegetable plants and flowers our gardeners have planted.

There is a small annual rental fee ($20) associated with renting a community garden plot. This covers shared access to tools, as well as some fertilizers, soil amendments, and pesticides. All gardeners are required to abide by Community Garden policies.

Each rental fee covers the rental of one raised bed plot. On occasion, you may be invited by fellow gardeners to share in their harvest, or exchange help for bounty.
