Growing Our Community Through Gardening

Our Mission

Community Gardens of Henry County (CGHC) is a non-profit, volunteer organization established to serve the residents of Henry County by promoting a better sense of community through gardening, providing educational resources and opportunities for gardeners, serving as a vital food source for our community’s needy families and senior citizens, preserving gardening skills for future generations and being good stewards of the environment and green space.


The benefits of building a community garden to grow nutritious foods are too strong to ignore.
