The Villa Heights Community Garden was established in April 2014, thanks to the vision, dedication, and sweat equity of community members, along with a generous matching grant from the City of Charlotte’s Neighborhood & Business Services. The garden is located in beautiful Cordelia Park just below the playground. You can easily find it by looking down the hill to the brightly painted shed.


The garden was created with the vision of getting fresh produce in the hands of Villa Heights community members. It was also designed as a space for neighbors to come together, work together, and grow a better sense of community.

The community garden now has 11 plots that neighbors can sign up for to have your own person garden space for the season. The plots are available on a first come first serve basis, and can be retained on a year over year basis. Please contact the Community Garden Committee Chair for additional details about how you can get a plot for the upcoming growing season.
