We seek to – celebrate our roots, care for the earth, and cultivate community.
Ubuntu Community Gardens & Orchard envisions a world of right relationships among our neighbors and the Earth, our home. We plant seeds to grow in friendship and to model neighborliness. We cultivate the Earth to learn from the wisdom of Creation and to discover new skills from one another. We harvest the work of our hands to celebrate good healthy food and to nourish hope in those who hunger.
As of 2015, the thirty 5 ft. x 15 ft. Ubuntu garden plots serve fourteen families, including thirty adults and twenty-six children. Families gain self-reliance through growing their own good, clean, and healthy food. They enjoy the many benefits of gardening in community alongside a diverse group of neighbors.
Participation in weekly community nights and on work days is encouraged.
Non-GMO and organic seeds are provided to all gardeners, as is water.
Synthetic pesticides, herbicides, and chemical fertilizers are not allowed.
