Gardening is what brings us together as a community. Care for earth, care for people, and a fair share for all.
Planning for this garden’s design and management began when 60 community members attended a public meeting on 29th July 2009. The first plantings were made in October 2010 and implementation of the original plans continues today.
We do not have individually managed beds. Rather, the garden is worked as a whole. Our combined effort has enabled the very efficient development of the whole site.
The shared garden allows each crop to be planted with reference to the drainage, shelter, and shading that differ on each level. It also enables us to use crop rotation to help control disease and insects.
We share all of the work and all of the harvest.
