Canal Community Garden

karen_blog_500 

Located on the corner of Bellan Blvd and Windward Way, resides the Canal Community garden. Where once existed a vacant lot, a new life has spung up to service the needs of a diversified community interested in growing sustainable fruits and vegetables that are reminiscant of the culture they left behind.

This project grew out of a partnership between the Trust for Public Land and the Canal Alliance and now, two years later it has taken on a life of its own with classes in gardening for the community, 92 raised beds, a greenhouse, potting tables ,and composting bin. The new design uses sustainable, environmental features, including water saving dorught- resistant plants and a rainwater catchment system to irrigate the garden beds and educate about water conservation.

Many thanks the to the local the private donors including:

  • Planting Justice who built the planter and growing beds for the garden
  • Pacific Nurseries who provided all the trees, shrubs, ground cover, and a precious fig tree for the centerpiece
  • Marin Sanitary Service who provides free garbage service
  • Canal Alliance who oversees the operations of the garden.

If you would like to sign up for a planting bed just go to the www.canalalliance.com  website and fill out an application. They are assigned as they become available to people on the waiting list. What a way get your hands in the dirt and put a smile on your face.
