The Turner Farm Community Garden Program

The Turner Farm Community Garden Program is committed to connecting people to their food through new collaborative methods and innovative urban land use with an emphasis on sustainable biological agricultural practices, experiential learning and civic engagement.

At present the Turner Farm Community Garden Program continues its pilot garden in the East End and during the summer of 2011 developed the Winton Terrace Community Garden.  In addition we are partnering with the Franciscan Community Garden on garden training for Bhutanese refugees and neighborhood gardeners.  We are currently researching community interest, need and existing garden programs in other neighborhoods with the goal of identifying and reaching out to residents, potential organizations and diverse populations with whom to collaborate.  The purpose of the research is to avoid duplication of existing services and most importantly to better understand and identify neighborhoods with an interest in community-based gardening.

Are you interested in Learning and Growing Together?

Beginning Tuesday, February 20 the Turner Farm Community Garden Program is offering a series of six free gardening classes for home and community gardeners.  During the sessions we will work together to learn garden basics in the classroom and the Price Hill Community Garden.  Class topics include growing fruits and vegetables naturally, seed starting, direct sowing seeds and potatoes, seasonal growing practices, managing pests, in addition to when and how to harvest, cook and store your garden bounty.

In addition through the Learn-Grow-Earn Program participants will have the opportunity to earn a garden bed for their home in exchange for participating in the garden classes, practicum and volunteer work.
