The evolving mission of Deeper Down Community Garden is to create gathering space for those in the community, a source of healthy food for local families, and an educational resource for individuals and for the local schools.
In Phase 1 we installed a beautiful community walking trail that circles around a family playground.
In Phase 2 we began the primary vegetable garden located within the walking trail!
In Phase 3 we built a community pavilion/pole barn between the playground and the garden!
