Senior Community Garden
The Madison-Mayodan Recreation Commission (Department) (non-profit-governmentkl) is in the process of planning to construct a series of 10-10' x 10' garden plots (raised beds) behind the main recreation building located in Mayodan, NC. Seniors, along with their siblings, will tend the garden and 75% of the food will be donated to a local food bank. The rest will be retained by the seniors tending the gardens as a source of healthy foods. All materials to maintain these gardens will be managed by employees of the Madison-Mayodan Recreation Commission (Department)
