Community Garden

ESTABLISHED IN 2021

OUR STORY

Downtown Norfolk Community Garden was established in 2021 to benefit the diverse community of Downton. It is located on the property of Freemason Street Baptist Church and was created in partnership by members of the church, the Downtown Norfolk Civic League, and Norfolk Master Gardens.

 

Prior to the garden’s establishment, Norfolk had many public spaces; but it did not have a community garden in the heart of downtown. This project was designed to revitalize a vacant city lot and create a living, vibrant community space.
