COMMUNITY GARDEN

Tarrant Area Food Bank’s Community Garden Program

Helping community members and organizations create thriving community gardens.
Through the program, TAFB manages the Learning Garden where community members learn about effective gardening techniques while they help tend the garden and grow nutritious fruits and vegetables that are distributed to those in need. Each week, volunteers are invited to come to the TAFB Learning Garden to help plant and harvest fruits and vegetables, pull weeds and learn new gardening skills.
Volunteers also help out in TAFB’s Kindred Spirits Kitchen Garden located on the grounds of the organization’s Dorothy and Norman M. Kronick building at 2525 Cullen St. in Fort Worth. In addition, TAFB provides garden tours and regular workshops on gardening techniques at the TAFB Learning Garden. The garden is located next to Ridglea Christian Church and The Glass House at 3251 Sappington Place in Fort Worth.
