Community Garden at Mt. Pleasant

 

Community gardens empower individuals, knit together a stronger community, beautify local areas, and produce clean and nutritious food. The Howard County Conservancy began a community garden in 2009 at our Mt. Pleasant site in Woodstock. It provides another opportunity for the local community to enjoy the beautiful surroundings of Mt. Pleasant and help meet the demand for garden sites in Howard County.

 

Features of the Community Garden

  • Our community garden includes a pollinator garden to attract beneficial insects and wildlife
  • The deer fencing surrounding the garden protects plants from deer browse
  • Water, wood chips and a compost bin are provided for gardeners
  • The Conservancy hosts workshops and lectures of interest to gardeners. Be sure to check our upcoming events.
  • We make regular donations to local food banks. In 2019, our Community Gardens donated over 3,400 pounds of fresh vegetables to the Howard County Food Bank!
