Smithville community seeks a garden
by Staff Writer
The garden will be available to residents of Smithville – and greater Cornelius if there’s space – to grow crops for personal and family consumption or for sale in area produce markets if the quality and quantity are sufficient.
Landowners loaning property for use as a community garden may be eligible for a property tax reduction as output from the garden exceeds personal consumption needs and sales to others are generated.
For more information, or to donate or loan property for a neighborhood garden, contact Lisa Mayhew Jones at email@example.com or 704-907-0688. Deadline for consideration is April 15.
