Avondale Community Garden
The Franklinton Community Garden (now Avondale Community Garden) was started in 2006 by community residents who wanted green space to grow their own food. Over the first few years, the site developed into a community plot garden. This garden was the inspiration for the formation of Franklinton Gardens.
The Avondale Community Garden has hosted many community events, and is part of the Franklinton Art Walk.
Membership/garden plots are available for $5 a year. There are two 500-gallon rain barrels, and watering cans available on-site for watering plots. When available, free plant starts are made available to garden members.
