The Town of Bennett was awarded two grants in 2019 to create a community garden. Those grants were awarded from Adams County Open Space and LiveWell HEAL Cities and Towns.
In that same year, the Town worked together with the Bennett School District FFA to create the design of the garden. Their research and suggestions ultimately helped shape the current layout of six raised garden beds with generous walkways in between each.
A community tree mural by local artist, Christopher Deaver, also resides at the Community Garden. This piece of artwork includes community member art pieces that were collected at Bennett Days and Trunk-or-Treat.
The garden is located at the Civic Center Complex near Town of Bennett Town Hall.
The Bennett Community Garden was created for the community. Neighbors are encouraged to participate in all levels of development and site maintenance. Individuals of all ages, backgrounds, etc. are encouraged to come together in the spirit of community to enjoy the garden.
