Green building isn't just about building an efficient, environmentally friendly home. It's also about an overall healthy lifestyle that includes walking, exercising, and enjoying local foods, among other things.
In our Davidson Springs neighborhood we are providing resources to encourage all of the above. Our new community garden is just one place where homeowners can get outside, sweat a bit, and best of all enjoy some very local food.
A community garden is a great space where neighbors can interact, and it also provides an opportunity for homeowners on smaller lots to act out their inner green thumb. In that spirit we began a community garden in Davidson Springs, our neighborhood of custom homes in the heart of downtown Davidson, North Carolina.
This year the garden features corn, green beans, tomatoes, peppers, squash, watermelon and pumpkins. Sunflowers and a variety of annual and perennial flowers provide a splash of color. A nice fence surrounds the garden since our neighborly cordiality does not extend to our four legged friends!
Come by and see the community garden on James Alexander Way. And, as the sign says, “tend some and take some.” Enjoy.
