Communal Gardening Space

Community Garden

Active Garden is home to our first outdoor Community Garden, where some 50 kinds of edible plants, ranging from herbs and vegetables to fruit trees, are grown and cared for by our volunteers. These crops are harvested and used in a series of interactive, educational public workshops conducted at Active Garden, as part of our efforts to encourage greater interest in home gardening.
