Description: We strive to provide a space for those interested in growing their own fresh organic produce, like being outdoors, and enjoy a sense of community. We want to create a bustling, multicultural, muligenerational community to share knowledge and build relationships - all in the name of education and responsible land stewardship.

The benefits of community gardening are many and varied, including everything from better health to community building. The thinking goes like this: gardening your own food gives you acess to a variety of fresh produce that supports nutritional health, and the exercise that you get helps promote healthy living. The food isn't the only thing that grows at the gardens - gardeners get to know one another and often friendships flourish. There are also benefits to the environment as rainwater is filtered through gardens, and growing food locally means long transortation routes aren't necessary. Please note the use of pesticides and synthetic fertillzers are prohibited as rare is committed to organic agriculture methods.
