Community Garden Project

The Killeen Municipal Court Community Garden is part of a program sponsored by the Killeen Municipal Court. The garden offers teen offenders another means to serve their community service time, while learning a skill. Under court supervision, the young offenders will have a chance to get their hands dirty, pull weeds and help grow vegetables and plants, which we consider an excellent way to spend time learning and working well with others.
