Community Garden

A community garden is for people who want to learn how to grow a vegetable garden or just don’t have space for a garden. It’s a great way to eat healthy on a budget, too!


What is a Community Garden?

It is a group of people that come together to garden. Gardeners can have their own individual plot within the community garden and can also join with others to grow some crops together. Every community garden is different and is determined by what the gardeners themselves want.

Seeds, plants, tools, and ongoing support for newer gardeners is provided. No fee to participate.

To register for the garden:

Call us in February or as soon as possible in the spring to reserve you garden space.

The food in the garden plots is reserved for the gardeners who have registered for this program. We sometimes have food from the garden that anyone is able to pick-up. If you need food, please ask at reception. You can also watch our Facebook and Twitter pages for times when anyone can pick up food.
