Join the Garden

Those who rent plots at the Benson Community Garden are called “members.” But, they’re more than just members …we are a family. In addition to growing food, many friendships have blossomed along the way.

Volunteer

Amazing individuals and organizations reach out to help keep the community garden going. From simply pulling weeds to building structures to improve the garden, volunteers are our backbone of support.

Support the Garden

From plot fees, we operate on an annual budget of $1440 (if we fill). Out of that comes insurance, supplies, fuel, tool replacement, upgrades, etc. Were it not for the generosity of individuals and businesses, we would not continue to exist. Consider a donation via VENMO today!

“Community” is Our Middle Name

The reasons people join a community garden are many. Some live in rental properties and need a space to till up and grow their own fruits and vegetables. Others might have too much shade at home to garden. There are many who just enjoy being part of something social to help the community.

Never gardened before?
Many of our members only dreamed of growing their own food before joining. Through their own research, talking with fellow members, and a little hard work, they’ve grown as quickly as their plants. It’s not hard. It takes patience, work, and a little water.

Ready? Set. Garden!

If you are interested in becoming a member of the garden, please send us your information today. We are full for 2020, but have 36 plots for families or individuals to grow their own fresh fruits and vegetables in case you want to join us next season.
