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 of our agency. In the past two years, the Community Garden produced more than 1,300 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 been mulched and divided into 22 garden beds (two of which are handicap accessible), that can be adopted by anyone who is interested in planting and maintaining a plot 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 plot and be involved with FFS's Community Garden where produce will be grown, harvested and donated to FFS's Food Pantry. For $20.00, you will be provided with a garden plot, soil, compost, use of tools and a selection of seeds.
