Community Gardening at Belle Vie Farm
Belle Vie Farm is beginning its Community Gardens with three 4 x 8 organic garden beds. Our soil is purchased from Southern States Garden Center in Carrboro (bulk) and spread in cedar wood beds. We are now leasing both half and full beds (4x4 beds are $50/season and 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!
Our gardens will be fenced in to protect from deer. We provide trowels, plant markers, watering cans (as well as hose) and an assortment of gardening gloves for kids & adults. Currently, we have a portable restroom on site. Our school will be completed August 2019, at which time our indoor bathrooms will be available to gardeners.
Each gardener must sign a BVF Gardening Agreement and pay the full lease fee prior to beginning gardening.
If you would like to lease a 4x4 or 4x8, please email to reserve your plot!
Please Note: All beds are reserved
already for the 2019
