The Garden is host to over 80 gardeners. Many are recent immigrants and refugees from Bhutan and Nepal.
Gardeners rent space for a nominal fee and work together on community plots that provide produce for donation.
The garden donates approximately 1000 pounds of produce each year to local non-profits.
Making use of the large green space next to St Clare Convent, Franciscan Ministries offers growing space for community gardeners.
The Garden not only provides individuals a place to cultivate vegetables and flowers, but also gives back to the community through donations of produce.
