Any time is a great time to plant YOUR garden!!
Center Street Community Garden was started with a dream. The open lot across the street from the church was once an eyesore to the community. It was littered with trash and unwanted furniture, broken bottles and drug paraphenalia. First Presbyterian Church Nightwatchman and resident, Drew Rushlow, along with help from others in the community contacted the City of Pomona and through hard work and dedication created the Center Street Community Garden. With the help of church youth and community members, Drew turned the the empty lot into a beautiful flourishing garden. The corner at Center Street and Gibbs is now a place of community and growth, and where many passersbylove to stop and admire (and even pick a flower through the fence!).
The 4 X 16 feet plots are available for rent to members of the community for $15 per quarter. We have monthly workdays, workshops, annual harvest celebrations and more. The garden is also used by Pomona Hope After School Program to assist in teaching the children of the community about growing vegetables and herbs, how they can make a difference in the community, and from where their food comes.
Everyone is welcome to come and help on garden work days, even if you are not a current plot holder. Attendees have a lot of fun getting to know other gardeners and people from the community. Upcoming dates are:
Saturday, October 7th, 2017 from 10am - 12noon
