Building Community Through Gardening

The Sherman Community Garden exists to build community and foster an appreciation of gardening by providing enjoyable and safe places to grow crops, gather as friends, and learn the techniques of successful gardening.

The garden is located at 600 N. Maxey St. in Sherman.


Regular meetings on Fourth Tuesdays!

We recently changed our schedule so that regular meetings are held on the fourth Tuesday of each month. Learn more about our regular meetings.
