Community Garden

THE GOALS OF OUR ORGANIC GARDEN:

  • A source of organic food for the community and SJU soup kitchen
  • A peaceful place for reflection
  • Serve as a visible product of land stewardship and a healthier urban environment
  • Serve as a community learning place for sustainable urban agriculture and garden practices
  • Support pollinator habitat and corridors
  • Preserve community open space.

Interested in doing more than just tend once a month? Adopt a plot of your own!
