We have 15 individual plots and also welcome garden supporters who would like to join as a ‘Friend of the Garden’ supporter member.

Choose your level of support ($25/yr or more) and stay in touch with garden activities, join us for workshops and social gatherings, receive garden excesses, and enjoy being a part of the garden.
