Sharing the Harvest

 Comm Garden

Active garden volunteers are key to a successful community garden. Become a Community Gardener to grow fresh, healthy vegetables, herbs, and more in the company of fellow volunteer gardeners. Whatever your interests, we welcome you to join us! The Kirkwood Community Garden offers a variety of gardening opportunities for individuals and families with a schedule that is convenient for you. Review the Gardener Guidelines and complete the Community Gardener Application to get started.

How it Works

Volunteers network together to develop a planting plan, water maintenance and weeding schedule, and completion of other tasks. Throughout the season, gardeners share the produce grown among each other. Communal hand tools and equipment are provided for Gardener’s use in the 14-shared plots. Services provided in the gardens include water source, maintained paths, composting, recycling, fencing, and the advice of the experienced Park staff. 

Time Commitment

The season begins with a Spring Kick-Off meeting followed by contributing at least 20-hours of gardening activity and taking watering shifts throughout the season. The season concludes with a fall clean-up.
