Friendship Community Gardens hopes to utilize gardening and its unique location to build new relationships across existing racial and ability barriers while also helping to provide sustainable food options for those living in our community.
The garden site is located at the intersection of the Savoy Heights neighborhood, Haymount, Friendship House Fayetteville, and the Forest Lakes neighborhood—a community of diverse financial, intellectual and physical abilities. The benefits of neighbors working side-by-side to grow healthy foods are innumerable! Benefits would include:

  • helping single-parent families with limited resources to supplement their tables with locally grown produce
  • teaching local children how to make healthy food choices through horticulture
  • supporting young adults with disabilities as they learn to lead more independent lives
  • supporting neighbors in our community that are very often marginalized

Unlikely friendships will likely be established! And unlikely friendships are critical for our community’s physical, mental, and spiritual well being. Using sustainable, organic gardening practices, Friendship Community Gardens connects people of all socioeconomic and ability backgrounds in order to both provide healthy nutritional options and cultivate friendships where everyone in the community grows.

Mission statement

To community garden at the intersection of three diverse neighborhoods in order to plant, grow, and harvest healthy food options for local residents while creating space for racial and disability reconciliation within our community.
