Bountiful Harvest Community Garden

The West End Bountiful Harvest Community Garden was started in 2015 by one of HPU VISTA students after meeting with the community for about a year. West End Ministries in a joint effort with the community was able to lease land from the City of High Point Community Development & Housing Department in August of 2015. They were able to start clearing the land to prepare for the garden. In 2016, they hired the first garden coordinator. The garden began to blossom with raised beds, vegetables, and fruits. A playground and picnic area were constructed because it was important to the community to have a place to go with their families and children. In 2019 a new garden coordinator was hired and brought more awareness to the garden, more of the community participation along with more playground equipment. In 2020 the current garden coordinator was hired, who has brought in more garden experience. Bountiful Harvest has over 30 raised beds that the community uses to plant and harvest for themselves. There are beds set aside where anyone in the community can come and gather fresh produce. There are over 10 fruit trees like apples and pears; a 20 ×40 shelter with picnic tables, 3 different playgrounds for children of all ages and benches throughout the garden/park for people to come and relax. Bountiful Harvest has been a bright spot for people in the community for many years and for many more to come.
