What is a Community Garden?
Simi at the Garden is an all organic community garden where everyone in the community can come together to connect with nature, learn, volunteer, interact, serve, heal and grow as individuals and as a community. It is also a place to raise fruits, vegetables, flowers and herbs, and participate in the stewardship of healthy, biodiverse ecosystems.

After all, we all started the same way! Plots are available on a first-come first-served basis, and you can reserve your plot by completing and submitting a Garden Plot Application. Plot fees will be collected at the time of plot assignment. Thank you.
We welcome volunteer groups and individuals to the garden to help out at our monthly workdays and projects. If you or your group is interested in volunteering at the community gardens please Contact Us.
