New Community Garden!

Please help spread the word about Jonesborough’s new community garden!

The Town of Jonesborough’s Parks and Recreation Department is offering both new and experienced gardeners a chance to participate in the Jonesborough Community Garden for the 2016 planting season.

The garden is located off of Hillrise Drive in Jonesborough and space is available on a first come, first serve basis. The land is being offered for use to the public through a shared partnership between the Town and local resident, Jim Eldridge.

There are 24, 4’ x 8’ raised beds available for use by the public for a low fee of $20/year to cover the cost of water usage. Applications are available by e-mailing

In addition to offering residents the opportunity to grow their own vegetables, the community garden is also providing an avenue for residents to grow vegetables for our local food bank, Jonesborough Food Pantry. Any extra produce from gardens will be donated directly to The Jonesborough Food Pantry, which is supported by the Jonesborough Area Ministerial Association.

Funding for the community garden was provided through a grant from the Tennessee Recreation and Parks Association. If you would like to participate by renting a space for the year, or if you’re interested in volunteering, please contact Rachel Conger,
