ART AT THE GARDEN
More about the Fairbanks Community Garden, a Fairbanks non profit founded in 1984: It is the goal of the Fairbanks Community Garden to enable as many people to garden each year by providing safe, accessible garden plots for a low cost fee. Since 1984 we have provided garden space in Hamilton Park, a Fairbanks North Star Borough park near downtown Fairbanks. The Garden supports the users with tools and services such as shovels and hoes, water, sanitation facilities and moose fencing to help guarantee a successful outcome. These gardens are managed and maintained by a volunteer group. We lease the space from the Borough and operate with a very low budget and little or no cost to the taxpayer. Garden plots are planted for a variety of purposes, from individuals using it to fill their families root cellars and pantries for the winter, to nonprofit groups growing crops to feed the hungry.
is designed to fabricate authentic wonder, engagement and enjoyment through public art. TFNQTP will be the first of its kind in the state, bringing this new folk art movement to Alaska.
