Alemany Farm at St. Mary’s Playground

Alemany Farm

The Recreation and Park Department supports and manages a program of 38 (and growing!) community gardens on City-owned property, where members can grow produce and ornamental plants for personal use. Gardens range in size from a few hundred square feet to thousands of square feet; some offer individual plots while others have shared plots. Some gardens also offer demonstration gardening or other instructional programming.

Each garden is operated by a group of committed volunteers, and membership fees are often self-imposed to cover common expenses.
