• Community Gardens
    Local households have an opportunity to grow fresh produce in a community garden that is conveniently located close to home. Though each garden has a slightly different design and focus, the common thread is "growing community through gardening." Each garden provides gardening and educational opportunities for adults and youth.

    Carver Garden
    Carver Community Garden is a 3,500 square foot community garden on the grounds of Carver Elementary School. The garden is divided into individual plots that can be rented for the growing season. Our mission is to create a community garden setting that will provide an outdoor classroom to support student learning and allow students, families and individuals in the community the opportunity to grow, tend and harvest their own food while creating a greater sense of community.

    Cowern Garden
    The Cowern Community Garden is located on the former Cowern Orchard and Habitat land. The orchard has been restored to fruit bearing and the garden is divided into individual plots that can be rented for the growing season. Our mission is to create a community garden setting that will foster involvement, leadership and service opportunities for students, families and neighbors, provide an outdoor classroom to support student learning and allow families to grow their own food and reconnect with the earth.

    All plots are rented for the 2018 season. If you wish to be placed on a waiting list for the 2019 season or for more information, please contact Cheryl at 651-748-7252 or cgysbers@isd622.org.

    Harmony Garden
    Harmony Garden consists of 30 individual plots which students and staff from the programs at Harmony Learning Center are able to rent to grow their own vegetables and flowers. Many of the gardeners are from the English Language Learning program and their garden plots showcase crops and gardening techniques native to their homeland. 

    Plots are not available to the public.
