Community Garden

Garfield Park Neighborhoods Association is continuing to work with community partners on a community garden at 1714 Madison Ave SE. We hope to contribute to community transformation, neighborhood revitalization, and ecological restoration of the area through the active participation of neighborhood gardeners.

If you are interested in gardening and providing healthy food for your family, GPNA is excited to extend the invitation to garden with us!

We encourage anyone interested in gardening to join us for the 2019 growing season (Mid-April through Mid-October). You do not have to live in the Garfield Park Neighborhood to participate.

The community garden offers two levels of involvement, individual and community.


There are several 5’ by 12’ plots available to rent for the season. Plot rental fee is $25 (with a $25 refund at the end of the season). You are in charge of planting, weeding, harvesting and clean up on your plot.


Maybe you don’t have the time or knowledge to invest in your own plot.  That’s ok! Join us in the community plots planting, weeding, and harvesting. Food from these plots is available for anyone to take home.

The community garden may provide a grocery trip’s worth of seasonal vegetables a week when harvest begins!
