Memphis City Gardens at Central Station Launches Community Garden

Community Creates Healthy Opportunities for Local Gardeners

MEMPHIS, Tenn (May 16, 2011)— Memphis City Gardens at Central Station will launch in May 2011.  In cooperation with the South Main Association, MATA, and the Memphis Farmers’ Market, four prototype bed gardens have been built near the south parking area of Central Station in downtown Memphis.

A committee was formed in early 2011 with a mission to promote urban garden education, to contribute to the beatification of Memphis, and to grow healthy food in the Memphis community.  The urban garden is non-profit, and in its first stages of implementation.

Additional information will be forthcoming as the prototype garden mission continues.  Information will be available on the Memphis City Gardens website at, on Twitter at @MemCityGardens, and at
