The Garden has outgrown its current temporary location and the site is programmed for redevelopment in the near future. This new permanent location will enable the Garden group to expand its services and make permanent improvements to the site that will serve the community for decades to come. In addition to doubling the number of garden plots, the new location will include a restroom, new native habitat, and enhanced accessibility for members with limited mobility.
