“Be a helping hand” and join us as we plant, weed and pick tomatoes and herbs this season. We want you and your family to be a part of this working garden as it grows and expands. Learn how you can grow tomatoes, herbs and other vegetables. Explore how a garden can save you money. Taste a freshly picked red ripe tomato while supplies last at one of our teaching sessions.

The mission of this garden is to involve our local community in learning how to start their own garden as well as the benefits of eating fresh vegetables and fruits. Learning how to season your foods with herbs can be one way you can cut back on use of salt.
Plant a seed and watch it grow. With the sun and water as well as some digging, hoeing and transplanting our garden is growing.

  • How growing your own vegetables can save you money.
  • How to be healthier by eating more vegetables and fruits.
