Description:

Mansion Greens Community Garden was established in 2012 with a mission to grow community through gardening. We believe that gardening is a means to develop community relationships, foster environmental stewadship, and promote environmental awareness.

The 4,000 square-foot Masion Greens Forest Garden was planted in 2015 and comprises 16 fruit trees and more than 30 fruit shrubs. Edible perennial vegetables, herbs, and flowers are planted throughout to improve the health of the trees from root to fruit, create a supportive ecosystem for helpful birds and pollinators, discourage diseases and pest, create good soil and fertilizers, and provide habitat to increase biodiversity.

"You can bury a mulitude of worries in the dirt", Maragaret Schaffer
