About Our Garden

The garden is a living, breathing entity that uses dedicated hearts and helping hands to grow and flourish. The Garden offers raised garden bed membership opportunities.

Individual gardeners get a chance to grow some of their own vegetables, herbs, fruits and flowers. Gardeners gain a sense of community through weekly educational workshops and events.

Children get an opportunity to see where their food comes from, learn how things grow, how to care for plants and gain a sense of achievement in growing their own food.

ORGANIC GARDENING

The garden operates on the organic method of gardening. The use of inorganic pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, inorganic rodenticides, or inorganic herbicide is not permitted. Only biological pesticides, beneficial insects, and organic cultural practices are allowed for the control of garden pests.

Community Gardens

Community gardens beautify the neighborhood and provide a safe, recreational green space in which to relax and enjoy being outdoors. Children get to see where their food comes from, how to care for plants, and gain a sense of achievement in growing their own food.
