So what’s all this? 

If gardening is what you want, you’ll find it at Heritage Park Community Garden in Land O’ Lakes Florida. In October of 2019 the first of fifteen raised beds was installed marking the beginning of something great. The official opening and mural unveiling was held on February 15th 2020. Since the opening, the garden has grown, grown, grown! Garden space is in high demand and a wait list has been established for those folks who are interested in one day holding a spot at the community garden. The garden is host to individual raised beds which can accommodate different food crops from bush beans to kale and tomatoes. The garden also boasts a generous community area that gardeners use to plant crops that they can all share “give and take.”

Recently, a boy scout from Troop 442 in Spring Hill has completed his Eagle Scout project at the garden. The scout built and installed two “L” shaped raised beds which will be used as a platform for educational classes that will take place in the future. Soon, Katie, our UF intern will be bringing drip irrigation to the beds which will be strictly used for organic gardening. Free garden space and education? Yep, you’ll find it all at Heritage Park Community Garden.
