Community Harvest Garden
Community Harvest Community Garden provides 25 sunny, raised bed plots, along with blackberry canes, fig trees, and communal herb gardens for individuals and families. Whether you need space for a garden, want to learn organic vegetable gardening techniques, or have a desire to give back to the community, come check us out! Fifty percent of the produce harvested is shared weekly with local food pantries and shelters.
Community Harvest Garden is an outreach of Community Unitarian Universalist Church. We are a community of gardeners who nurture the Earth’s resources to produce organic food and share this bounty with our neighbors in need. As a community of gardeners, we create a compassionate, welcoming, and respectful place.
Our demonstration gardens show drought-tolerant gardening practices, including a keyhole garden, hugelkultur mount and terrace gardens, and food forest. Plant material is composted in bins placed throughout the garden. Selected food waste composts in bio-digesters and columns in the keyhole and tower gardens.
