Open Gardens Day
September 13, 2014 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
Please Join Us for the First Annual Open Gardens Day! On September 13, 21 community gardens around the city will be open to the public for enjoyment and education. Click here for a list and schedule of open hours and special events.
Our 38 gardens are volunteer-run (over 1,600 participants and counting!) under the umbrella of Rec and Park’s Community Gardens Program, which is a component of the new citywide Urban Agriculture Program.
The Urban Ag Resource Center at the GGP CommUNITY Garden will be open for free compost, soil and mulch pick-up from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. The GGP CommUNITY Garden is the largest garden in our system (with over 160 gardeners) and features a native plant nursery, demonstration gardens, and the City’s first urban agriculture resource center.
