Latest Update

Just like a seed germinating below the surface of the soil, a lot has been growing with your community garden. Our site has been approved by the Scenic Acres Community Association, we’ve recieved our first grant (out of more to come – fingers crossed) and have some materials donated from Siteone (formerly Burnco) to start building plots for use this summer! Our project expenses are estimated to be $43,000 (not including gardening equipment) so we could use additional support. If you are unable to donate funds, here are some other ways you can help:
 
  • Moving? Please consider donating gently used garden equipment, supplies, and hardscaping products.
  • Help reduce waste and have us reuse your items. If everything on our list was donated we could potentially save $4,100!
  • Please look at this list to see if there are any items you wish to donate.

A fundraiser is being planned for this spring. We are requesting plants to be donated that will be sold to raise funds for the construction of the garden.

  • If you have grow lights and would like to grow vegetable seedlings for us, we can supply all the pots, soils and seeds.
  • If you have existing plants, especially fruit bearing tree & bush suckers/shoots, houseplants and vegetable seedlings or perennials, please consider donating them to us.
  • Please review this list for the ideas of the kinds of plants you can donate.
