Posted: Updated:

Wichita Falls now has a community garden!

City and community leaders gathered for a dedication ceremony at 11:00a.m. on Thursday.  The Smith Street Community Garden is located just across the street from the Martin Luther King Center.  It utilizes a rain harvest system; mulch, compost, and bed construction that will make the lots water friendly.  The area is fenced and has video surveillance for security.  There are 79 8x8 garden plots that can be leased.

Seniors can rent a plot for $25 a year or $20 for the season.

Contact Larry Nash at (940) 761-7980 for more information.
