Get More from Life in a Community Garden Community

Community garden communities are perfect destinations for retirees and people of any age who enjoy the fruits of gardening. Healthy outdoor exercise and working with neighbors in productive social activities are just two of the reasons to live in a premier community garden community.

Why choose a community garden community?

Do you enjoy getting outside in the spring months to plant your favorite flowers? Do you get a special satisfaction from seeing your summer vegetable plants thrive and grow? Is the fall harvest your favorite time of year? Community gardens are the newest amenity in active-lifestyle communities around the country and your best choice if you love growing, eating and sharing the bounty of nature.

The benefits of living in a community garden community:

  • Community Garden Areas. Most new developments these days include prime locations for community gardens in their master plans, complete with water lines or entire irrigation systems. More established communities are adding new common gardening areas every year. You can stake out a plot or two of your own and share the costs of soil, seeds and fertilizers with your neighbors. The local climate is the only limit on the types of flowers and vegetables you can grow in your private area, while planting and caring for young fruit trees to create an orchard is a great way for residents to work together.
  • Community Garden Experts. Many places that have community gardens employ professionals to help get them started and offer their expertise to residents. And even if you've not been a gardener before, you'll find more than a few new friends at the community garden who are happy to share their knowledge and experience with you.
  • Community Garden Clubs. Traditional garden clubs may have just grown flowers for show, but today's garden clubs do much more. They assign plots, develop local planting schedules, share tools, monitor for pests and organize trips to other gardens in the area. Garden clubs encourage neighbors to become friends with new activities and interests that add to the overall quality of community life.
  • Community Garden Produce. Enjoying fresh-cut flowers and organic vegetables that you've grown from scratch can be a deeply satisfying experience. But community garden communities often take that to a higher level, working with area food banks to supply extra fruits and vegetables to local families in need. For many garden community residents, its the most fulfilling contribution to others that they can make.

Fairfield Glade | Tennessee Resort Communities | Best Golf TN

Fairfield Glade & Fairfield North

Fairfield Glade, TN
Homes, Townhomes: $300K - $900K Lots: $10K - $300K

Fairfield Glade is perched high atop the Cumberland Plateau, and offers serene mountain beauty as it sits on the highest point between the Rocky and Smoky Mountains. One of the favorite features of this area is the moderate year round temperatures. The pleasant summer days and the cool summer nights can be attributed to the Cumberland Plateau’s 2,000-foot-elevation, allowing for more comfortable temperatures and much lower humidity than most areas of the south.

What to do with all the fabulous weather and beautiful scenery? Golfing, boating, fishing, hiking, walking, swimming, tennis/pickleball-the list of fun activities available is simply endless! Plus, an outdoor amphitheater and biergarten just opened to host live music, movies, food and community events – it’s a great gathering place for neighbors to come together.

The community offers multiple subdivisions with a wide range of home sizes, price ranges, and views that include mountain, lake, golf and protected woodlands. Another attribute is the incredible cost of living in Fairfield Glade – no state income tax on wages, very reasonable home prices, and extremely low property taxes and club dues.

Fairfield Glade is just 6 miles from the city limits of Crossville, a small town, but bustling with activities. Crossville’s central location on Interstate 40 has made it a hub for many outlying areas and has given rise to a booming retail environment, offering shopping, dining and entertainment choices. The community is also located right off I-40, less than an hour from Knoxville, and an hour and a half from either Nashville or Chattanooga.

Testimonial
“The biggest deciding factor for choosing Fairfield Glade was the people, both in the Glade and in the town. When we came to visit the first time, we had no appointment and no agenda – we just popped in and wandered around. Folks stopped us everywhere we went – Food City, the Wellness Center, Villa Pizza – and just chatted. No one was in a hurry, everyone was interested in our story, everyone had some tidbit to share. The same thing happened on our second visit, and then on every visit we made once construction started. We felt like we had become part of the community before we were actually part of the community.” Michelle and James Bayless

Fairfield Glade has 11 lakes and two marinas.
