Zion began its community garden12 years ago. The garden has grown fast. Starting with 25 garden plots in 2008, the garden has grown to 82 plots in 2019.

Located at the base of a hill and only a few hundred yards from Holes Creek, the garden site is blessed with good soil and plentiful moisture. In most seasons, watering at planting time is almost all that is required! But when needed, we have a well at the garden with a windmill/water tank system to give easy water access to all our gardeners

Preschool Pumpkin Patch

Plots are 10 ft by 20 ft. For those wanting to garden, a donation of $25 is requested for a single plot and $35 for two. Gardeners may have up to 2 plots. The garden opens up around May 1st (weather permitting) and closes down in early November.
