Trinity Episcopal Church invites our neighbors from Old Escondido and across North County San Diego to participate in a permanent community garden to be located at the rear of the church property at 845 Chestnut, Escondido, CA 92025.
We’re creating a community, educational, inter-generational garden to:
- Provide garden plots for those who wish to grow and harvest vegetables for personal use,
- Teach the seed to table process,
- Create interaction between young and old in our neighborhood, and
- Promote sharing of excess produce with families in need.
The projected opening is Spring 2017. The garden will offer the community 40 ground-level plots (4′ x 12′) and 10 accessible raised beds (4′ x 4′) designed to support our educational and inter-generational goals. Help us build and maintain the garden and make it a vibrant addition to our neighborhood!
We can provide our historic Escondido community a place to meet, grow, learn and share produce with each other and the community at large. Escondido urgently needs additional plots—most of the other community gardens have long waiting lists.
A quarterly fee of $25 will cover the cost of water and maintenance; sponsored plots will be available for those who have financial hardship but wish to participate.
Let’s work together to make this a wonderful addition to the historic Old Escondido neighborhood.
