PLOT DESCRIPTION

About the WWC Community Gardens


The Community Garden is part of the larger Warren Wilson College Garden, which provides food for the school dinning hall and local markets. The Community Garden is land set aside for students, faculty and staff who don’t have garden space at home, for them to grow their own food.  Become a member of the WWC Community Gardens by committing to a full gardening year, a summer season or a winter season. Plots vary in size, from 10”X12” to 20”X20”. With your donation of $10 you get a plot, irrigation water, access to CG tools and cubby space in the CG shed. Garden crewmembers, the garden crew manager and the CG managers are always available to offer advice. 

We ask that you keep your plot planted, weeded and watered and that you contribute to community efforts towards the upkeep of paths, compost bins, sheds, and tools. There will be a few organized workdays and harvest potlucks over the year to get everyone together.
Please keep in contact and good luck gardening!

The Community Garden is composed of 19 plots ranging in size from 10"x12" to 20"x20".  With a donation, Community Garden members get a plot for a summer, winter, or full growing season.  Sign ups for garden plots happen in the spring.  To find out more about having your own plot, check out the brochure/application.  Also look for announcements of Community Garden Spring 2008 Open Plot meetings in March and April.
