To connect our community through gardening
We are a group of residents with a shared interest in gardening, fresh food, and cooking. We believe strongly in building community where we live and are volunteering our time to help create a new shared volunteer garden space in Mountain View, California.
We will begin gardening at Heritage Park Demonstration Garden in the new year. We appreciate your support.
Wheat planting this coming Saturday
This coming Saturday is going to be pretty special. Monica Spiller from The Whole Grain Connection, has done a tremendous amount of research on sustainable grains and varieties that grow well in California. We are lucky enough to have her give us a short 20 min talk on these grains and then we'll be planting a variety of wheat from her seeds. Definitely try to make this one if you are interested in sustainable grains. 10am- Noon on Saturday, March 25, 2017
Where: Heritage Park garden, 771 N Rengstorff in Mountain View
When: Saturday, March 18, 2017
Time: 10AM - NOON
This is a volunteer garden and is open to everyone. No experience necessary. If you like to garden, you're welcome.

To participate as a volunteer, you simply need to be interested in gardening, and then show up on garden workdays as often as you like. Each garden workday will have a couple of tasks scheduled for that day. Our workdays will be held every Saturday and Wednesday from 10AM - Noon (events calendar is being created and will be posted on our website soon).
If you choose to volunteer, your time commitment can be as little or as much as you like. Each workday is about 2 hours.
A low commitment would be one workday a month (about 2 hours total) or frequent coming once a week for gardening (~2 hours/week). If you like what we are trying to do, we'd love for you to be more involved by volunteering on a committee (~1-4 hours/month) to help create events for the community.
We hope to see you on Saturday!
