MARC Community Garden

Our community garden is open to anyone who wants to learn how to grow food with others. Both seasoned gardeners and beginners can enjoy this space. Each season, we collectively grow food in a large shared space and share our harvest with anyone who helps us maintain the garden. We also rent out thirty-five 4'x8' plots in which people can grow their own food to take home.

Our mission: In our garden, we create a positive community space where we grow healthy food and friendships. We do this through learning, open communication, and caring for each other and nature.
