Grow It Eat It


The Sykesville Community Garden was established in 2012 as a way for the local community to get involved in gardening activities.   It is an educational garden for children and adults where everyone shares in the work, reward of planting and maintaining the garden through 3 growing seasons.

This is a true community project.   Anyone who participates shares in the harvest.  Anyone can come and pick a tomato, cucumber, fresh herbs or whatever they need for dinner that night. 

Anyone is welcome to join us.  We are located behind the townhouse on the hill off on main street near the gazebo.

Sykesville Community Garden: Anyone who participates shares in the harvest.


Our mission is to help Marylanders improve their health and save money by growing fresh vegetables, fruits, and herbs using sustainable practices.

Master Gardeners conduct a lecture series to teach community members how to create sustainable vegetable gardens in their backyard.
