Plant a seed at one of the most successful community gardens in Jefferson County! Councilman Hal Heiner funded the original creation of what is now the William F. Miles Community Gardens just off Shelbyville Rd in Beckley Creek Park. The land was previously used as a dairy farm and has very fertile soil. Our partners at Jefferson County Extension Service manage the community garden which we recently expanded to 90 plots . Plots are available to community members for a small fee. Working in the garden helps to create a positive connection between people and the land. To reserve a plot at the William F. Miles Community Garden, please call the Jefferson County Extension Service at 502-569-2344. If you don’t have much of a green thumb but can still appreciate the efforts of our gardeners, be sure to peek over the fence and see the sunflowers, vegetables and other plants blooming here (but please don’t pick the crops!)
We are a donor-supported public park We count on you!
Being a donor-supported public park means we rely on donations, not tax dollars, for annual operations each year. Because of your generosity, we are able to maintain, program, and further develop this extraordinary public space without charging an entry fee. Together we work to enhance quality of life and help our community and economy grow in ways that are healthy, sustainable, and enjoyable for people of all ages. Help us reach our goal of sustaining The Parklands by becoming a Member today. Members make it happen!
