The Port St. Lucie Community Garden opened October 2015, after lots of hard work and support from residents.
The half-acre City Center property has been developed for this community garden through CDBG grant funding. There are 44 garden plots (4’x8’x12”) that folks may use to grow organic fruits, vegetables, herbs and flowers. Four additional plots are wheelchair accessible (4’x8’x24”) and are situated on concrete slabs.
Individual garden plots are available on a first-come, first-served basis. There is an annual fee of $25. Interested gardeners can get more information by contacting the Civic Center Recreation Desk at (772) 807-4499. You may also apply in person at the Civic Center Recreation Desk. If you have specific concerns or questions about the garden, please email Kelly Tiger at firstname.lastname@example.org. More city facility locations to apply for plots are coming soon.
Listen to Matthew Stover, a St. Lucie County school teacher, discuss the reasons he brought the idea of a community garden to Port St. Lucie and Planning & Zoning Director Patti Tobin and hear Matthew talk about how his idea became a reality.
This is a great opportunity for gardeners to have a happy, secure and enjoyable place where all participants can garden and socialize peacefully in a neighborly way.
The Port St. Lucie Community Garden is located at 2600 S.E. Waterview Drive, at City Center, just south of the Civic Center parking garage.
