an organic project
Eden Garden offers opportunities to provide fresh, organic, seasonal produce to local charitable organizations. We kickoff our season April 13, 2018; 9am-12pm.
When you come to the garden here on our property, you’ll see the newly built greenhouse! The greenhouse is used to germinate seeds and protect/nurture the seedlings until they are ready to plant in the garden. We have a continual supply of seedlings being cultivated throughout the season, so feel free to stop by and check it out!
You’ll also see a lot of survey stakes and construction material around, as we are in the midst of reconfiguring the garden to allow the church to maximize their build-able land. This reconfiguration requires new irrigation and deer fencing. In addition to the needs of the irrigation and fencing, we would like to build raised beds in the new area. We are asking our supporters to help out if they can in the quest to meet these needs. If you are passionate and supportive of the garden's mission, and able to donate a few dollars, it would be a great help to the garden! You can donate and find more details about the garden's needs here!
This year, our garden grew 2,726 lbs. of produce, which was an increase of 1,602.5 lbs. from the 2016 growing season! We couldn't do it without our faithful and loyal volunteers, which gave 869 hours of their time, allowing us to tend to and donate more food to the South Hayward Parish and Alameda County Food Bank via their satellite location at The Well Church!
We would love to see you in the garden and become a part of the community. Happy Growing!
