Houston’s Community Garden seeks to promote healthy lifestyles, provide fresh produce to volunteers and organizations, and support educational opportunities.
Everyone is welcome! Just sign in the binder at the Garden entrance when you visit. Some boxes are “rented” and maintained by families or individuals; all other are open to the community. Fresh food grown here goes to volunteers, the Houston Food Shelf, and Valley View Nursing Home. The Community Garden seeks to promote healthy lifestyles, provide fresh produce to volunteers and organizations, and supports educational opportunities.
Volunteers are always welcome and appreciated, as the Garden is run on 100% community volunteer power! If you’re interested in helping us maintain the Garden—by watering, weeding, planting, harvesting, etc.— contact Audrey Alfson at 507-894-3713.
You can find the Community Garden near the Houston Nature Center. Simply follow the Root River Trail toward Rushford a little way to see it; the street entrance can be found on west end of Cedar Street.
