The Gardens at Village Green
Come garden with us !
The Village Green community gardens project is on the site of the old Santos Florist store and greenhouse on Knowlton Street. The Village Green Foundation, Inc. oversees the Gardens at Village Green. The foundation is a not-for-profit educational organization whose purpose is to bring together diverse members of the community around a common commitment to community building, urban organic agriculture and access to healthy food.
There are 20 garden plots for Northsiders to grow vegetables and flowers using sustainable, organic methods.
We offer programs on composting and container gardening, and provide a center for field trips for the area elementary schools. This summer we are developing a Children's Garden and will host a "Summer Sprouts" program for Northside youth ages 9 - 12.
