Community Garden in Our Neighborhood!

Did you know that we have a community garden in our neighborhood?
What is a Community Garden?

A community garden is a place where neighbors can grow flowers or vegetables together on one piece of land. The land is usually volunteered by a home owner for use as a garden space. Separate garden plots, usually measuring about 3′ x 20′, are made available to individuals and families in the neighborhood. A drip irrigation system is installed to supply water to the plants. A monthly meeting gives each gardener a chance to learn more about their plants by working directly with a local gardening expert. A bimonthly newsletter also provides gardening tips and keeps everyone informed of activities at the other gardens in the city.  The cost is $15 per month.
