What we're about

We are a non-profit group that is dedicated to restoring our spaces to produce food for us and those around us in our communities. We have a straw bale raised garden planned for this season as well as chickens, ducks and rabbits. All members must be 18 or older, although families are welcome children must be accompanied by an adult. Come hang out, work in the garden, take care of the critters, have space to plan your own community garden or just come for tea. Find out more about is at our website
