General Information about the Community Gardens
Community gardens connect people of all ages and backgrounds to the earth and each other. Gardening spans generations with grandparents teaching grandchildren the joy of planting a seed and watching it grow into food for the family table. People from other countries bring plants and cultures to share from their native homelands. The garden promotes activities and exercise as well as provides nutritional food for a healthy life style.
Luscher Farm is a place like this - where the 180 organic garden plots are always filled and local residents anxiously wait for the yearly lottery for open garden spaces. Luscher Farm has the sun, fertile soil and space for local residents to grow a bountiful harvest of vegetables to feed families, save food dollars and share the experience with like minded new friends.
Local schools, garden clubs, merchants, nurseries, civic groups and individuals help make the garden a community gathering place and great source of pride. Close to 2,000 volunteers hours are given to support the community garden every year.
The lottery for 2017 Community Garden plots opened December 14 and closed December 30, 2016.
Luscher Farm also offers classes and activities to support gardening endeavors. To view the current schedule of children's programs, click here.
