Community Gardening at Belle Vie Farm
Belle Vie Farm leases ten 4 x 8 organic garden beds each season. Our soil is purchased from Southern States Garden Center in Carrboro (bulk) and spread in wooden (not treated wood) beds. 4x8 beds are $100/season). All plots must be used for growing produce and edible plants, as well as flowering plants. Our gardens are organic, so please remember that no pesticide, fungicides, herbicides or non-organic fertilizers may be used in the garden.
The summer planting season begins April 1 and ends approximately October 1. In the future, we may offer gardening for extended seasons. However, for our first year, we are sticking with the tried and true summer season!
We provide trowels and watering cans (as well as hose). We have a compost bin next the the beds. Feel free to grab some extra if your plants need it. We also sell vegetable starts.
Each gardener must sign a BVF Gardening Agreement and pay the full lease fee prior to beginning gardening.
If you would like to lease, please email to reserve your plot!
We have 1 garden bed remaining for the 2020 season.
