About the Program: 

Our mission is: To create a garden bassed community center that can serve as a place of learning, a place to grow nutritious food, to promote sustainable gardening and inspire community improvement. 

We are working to develop a community garden and learning lab at Natividad Creek Park in Salinas,CA. It has been an ongoing process since 2013. This year looks promising and if all goes well we should be able to break ground in early spring 2016!

In the mean time we have adopted a two plot garden in Central park. We will be transforming it into a pollinator garden and bringing programming to the garden once a month.
