2021 – Off To The Races

After several years of dreaming, planning, testing, preparing and building, Harvest Gardens is fully open. Our first construction (installing a water supply to the garden area) and the first test bed were installed in the fall of 1996. Since then we have tested ideas in that first garden plot, planned for the build out of the garden, worked on enlarging the infrastructure and support, installed more test gardens, and prepared for this year. Now, finally, Harvest Gardens is fully open and ready for a full growing season. In preparation for 2021, we have expanded our irrigation to support 15 new garden plots, installed an equipment shed to store shared equipment, and put the team in place to support our gardeners.

Pastor Dale Shorter works installing additional irrigation in anticipation of new garden plots for the 2021 growing season.

Now, the only thing left is to grow some vegetables. If you want to be a part of Harvest Gardens as a gardener or as a volunteer helping with maintenance and support please contact us a garden@harvestfortworth.org.
