Up to 50 regular gardeners including community groups maintain individual beds, and contribute to the upkeep of communal areas. There are cultural festivals, children’s and senior’s gardening programs, read-alouds, movie nights, clean up and planting days, housing roundtables, peace marches and other events. Great to see chickens and a beautiful turtle pond in this stellar space. It's seniors only weekday afternoons and open Thursday evening and weekends to all.
The M’Finda Kalunga Community Garden was founded in 1983. It's a rare example of a community garden in a city park.
It's in Sara D Roosevelt Park, which has a great coalition of stakeholders and neighboring organizations.
