North Lauderdale opened the gates of their Community Garden in 2011 and began offering small plots to residents interested in growing their own fruits, vegetables, herbs and plants. The City received a $10,000 grant from the Health Foundation of South Florida in January 2011 to create the garden on a vacant lot at Southwest 74 Terrace. The garden is divided up into 18 plots, plus a small area for plantings by kids’ groups.
Plots are available to residents for just $20 per year. Residents interested in a plot, can download an application for the Community Garden by clicking here.
