About gardening at Heritage
Heritage Community Garden is located on historic property in Georgetown, TX. It is the last 18 acres of the County Poor Farm. This property is owned by the City of Georgetown, but managed by Williamson County and Cities health District (WCCHD).
Heritage was founded in 2003. We have slowly built our community garden from 15 gardeners to over 100 gardeners. We are a completely organic garden. Our primary goal is to educate on the benefits of gardening, inproving access to nutritious, vegetables, fruits and herbs that are seasonal and fresh.
