First Stop, Inc.

Where to find us

The First Stop Gardening Program is operated out of our Stokes Street facility with the support of the Master Gardeners of North Alabama.

Our clients have the opportunity to grow food for consumption in our facility and also bring starter plants, fruits and vegetables grown on the premises to local farmers markets which they exchange for community donations that support First Stop programs. We are grateful for this opportunity to share our work with the community and to the Master Gardeners of North Alabama and our Sponsors listed below. Visit our Calendar page to see where you can find us around the community at local markets. 

  • Greene Street Farmers' Market
  • Bailey Cove Farmers' Market
