Community Garden
@ John J Byrne Community Center

Community members are encouraged to join us in cultivating our garden for the enjoyment of the community and children who use the center.

We Provide The Venue To Do Gardening As A Community

John J Byrne Community Center’s Village Store Community Garden provides a sense of “sanctuary” for the enjoyment of community residents. It’s a place where community residents come to enjoy gardening in the spirit of community.

Residents may select a section to cultivate their favorite vegetables and herbs. Raised beds are available in 6’x4′ and 4’x4′ sizes. You provide your own seedlings, nurture and water to harvest. In the course of your gardening chores, make friends and experience the community spirit and contribute to the healing and survival of the planet.

Garden & Maintain

Join our Community Garden club to plant, nurture and harvest your crops. We encourage community members who are seeking to engage with each other to learn and enjoy the arts and science of organic gardening. We’ve found that whether you’re good at gardening or not, this program is sure to lift your spirits when working together. Sometimes it’s not about the task, most times it’s about the person. 

“Hands in the dirt, head in the sun, heart with nature!”

To nurture a garden is to feed not just the body, but the soul. – Alfred Austine
Your ideas and donation resources help us provide a better environment for children and community.
