In the Community

The Civic Garden Center’s base in Avondale is the hub out of which its extensive reach into the community happens. The three core components of our community outreach efforts are:

  • Community Gardens Program: working with passionate neighbors to make the best use of vacant properties to transform neighborhoods one garden at a time.
  • Youth Education Program: bringing high-quality gardening education into classrooms and after-school programs, reaching over 400 children a month.
  • School Gardens Program: helping schools develop and sustain school gardening infrastructure and curriculum to help kids get outside and learn in the garden.

Our community outreach programs are made possible through the generous support of individual donors and grant-making foundations. To add your name to our list of supporters, donate today and join us for fantastic classes, events and The Plant Sale.
