Highland Community Garden

Located at 604 N. York Street, Gastonia
The Highland Community Garden is a partnership between the City of Gastonia, Keep Gastonia Beautiful and the Highland Neighborhood. If you’d like to know how to rent a plot, or volunteer to tend to our garden by pulling weeds, helping with art ideas, or planting plants, please let us know.

Beyond gardening, it is Keep Gastonia Beautiful’s hope that this corner in the Highland Community will be a continuation of the art initiative in the community, provide a space to gather for neighbors and area churches, an outdoor space to educate children from nearby schools and a place that will make the neighborhood proud.

For more information about the Highland Community Garden please contact Julie Heath at 704-869-1047 or email julieH@cityofgastonia.com.
