In partnership with the City of Frisco, Frisco Family Services, operates a community garden to promote community involvement and provide fresh fruits and vegetables to the clients we serve. In the past years, the Community Garden produced more than 1,000 pounds of fresh, organic produce that went straight to the FFS Food Pantry and into clients' homes. Some of the fresh produce the Community Garden harvests includes eggplant, cucumber, lettuce, tomatoes, cauliflower and broccoli. The land at the Community Garden has 27 garden beds available to be adopted by anyone who is interested in planting and maintaining a garden bed in the garden - from an individual or family, to a community group or business. The Community Garden is located at First Street and Ash Drive (8641 1st St., Frisco, TX 75034) in historic, downtown Frisco.
How to get more involved:
Are you interested in learning more about gardening? Would you like to beautify the neighborhood and build community? Do you have a desire to help others and feed the hungry? If you answered yes, yes and yes, then you are encouraged to adopt a garden bed and be involved with FFS' Community Garden where produce will be grown, harvested and donated to FFS' Food Pantry. In order to yield the most from the Community Garden, designated crops will be assigned to each bed. The fee per bed is $25 for a 4’x4’ bed and $40 for a 4’x10’ bed. Your fee will include a garden bed, soil, compost, use of tools and a limited selection of seeds, and or plants. You may also bring your own plants or seeds that correspond with your assigned garden bed.
