St. Charles Community Gardens

In 2013, St. Charles will open its first community garden, adjacent to the Gleneagles townhome community off of Billingsley Road. Plots of approximately 150 square feet will be available to Sheffield and Gleneagles residents on a first-come, first-served basis, with those residents then responsible for maintaining their plot. Water will be provided to the site, and there will be parking available adjacent to the plots.

There is no cost for the plot, which can be used to plant flowers and/or vegetables, but residents will need to sign a contract agreeing to the terms of care. This is a part of St. Charles' broad-based and continuing environmental initiatives. St. Charles is an environmentally friendly, smart growth community, and this program will allow us to share with our residents the stewardship of that environment.

Prior to opening the garden, the company will hold a meeting for interested residents and offer classes on gardening sponsored by the Southern Maryland Agriculture Development Commission and the Master Gardeners of Charles County. Look for more details soon!
