The Garden

The Pierce Street Community Garden was established in 2021 collaboration with Team Big Hearts from the Lynchburg Regional Business Alliance Leadership Lynchburg’s 45th class. The Garden is located the behind the old Calloway Store at 1301 Pierce Street.

After an eight month process, the garden was officially opened on September 30, 2021 as a hub for community engagement, a shared space to help promote sustainable agriculture and to provide a fresh food source for the neighborhood. The Garden is in its third planting season and is always open to the public.

We welcomes volunteers to help with planting, harvesting, general maintenance of the garden and food distribution to our neighbors. Volunteer sessions are held every Saturday morning from 9 – 11 a.m. from April to October.
