Find Your Space in Our Community

Gardening is about much more than simply growing your own food — it’s about getting outside, exercising, socializing, and teaching children (and reminding ourselves) where food comes from. It gives you a chance to connect with nature, and is a lifelong hobby that is both therapeutic and productive. Getting delicious fruits and vegetables is just a nice bonus. Greenville County Rec offers you your very own garden available at your choice of 4 locations for only $55 per bed annually.

Professional, friendly assistance is provided by Rec staff.  Contact Eileen if you have any questions, want to join the newsletter, or join a waitlist for a garden near you!
