WHCA Garden Plots

The front of West Hillhurst Community Association has a beautiful patio consisting of 23 garden beds, benches, a library, and a picnic table for community use. Let’s work together, grow together, learn together! We celebrate individuality and inclusiveness with gardeners of all ages. If you love to grow vegetables but don’t know how or have no space, we can help! We also have a full schedule of gardening seminars to help all levels of gardeners.

Available: TBA

All participants must sign up for a volunteer position with the gardens in addition to properly maintaining their own plot all season.
