Community gardens are spaces for neighbors to come together and grow wholesome and healthy food for their families. They provide a wonderful opportunity for children to learn about how food is grown and to garner an appreciation for where their food comes from. Each garden is self-managed; For more information on each garden location such as hours of operation visit us online. The Garden’s objective is to foster a safe environment where volunteers can engage students in topics and activities relating to gardening, nutrition, and agricultural career exploration.
