Community Garden

The Mustard Patch – A Community Garden

Hi! I’m Chloe and I’m an American Heritage Girl with Troop NC0512. I’m partnering with First United Methodist Church to build a community garden at Common Ground for my Stars and Stripes Award.

My goal for this project is to improve the sense of community, promote outdoor experiences, provide an inviting space to gather, worship and make Stanley a more sustainable community.

The garden will house 20 raised beds available for rental to garden members for an annual fee of $35.00.

I am seeking sponsors and donations of building materials, landscaping materials and monetary donations to create this incredible outdoor space.

10% of produce harvested from the garden will be donated to the Common Ground Food Pantry to support those in needs. Monetary donations are also being accepted to build a 24-hour Open Door Food Pantry at Common Ground.
