Lincolnton Arts Center Raised-Bed Garden Blessing
Downtown Lincolnton’s first wheelchair-accessible raised garden will bring new life to the old North Academy Street tennis courts beginning April 16 at 10 a.m.—the official ribbon cutting, groundbreaking and blessing of the garden.

“Our vision for the garden will come to life as we work side-by-side with community partners to plant, tend, and harvest flowers, vegetables and herbs—and make a beautiful spot in downtown Lincolnton,” Amy Vaughan, UMAR Art Program Coordinator, said.
