Red Monkey Flower

Shoreline Garden Project
Founded November 2011

Perhaps you have noticed the recent activity behind the CHOMP Wellness Center on General Jim Moore Boulevard?

The Marina Tree and Garden Club Board has an agreement to maintain 18 of the raised beds on behalf of our club. The larger project was created by Iris Peppard, of Everyone's Harvest, in conjunction with Goodwill Industries that owns the site. This project has been funded in part by grants from the Department of Agriculture and is a great opportunity for various groups and organizations to grow food in a community based setting.

All of the sturdy redwood planter boxes have gopher wire bottoms and are filled with a good vegetable growing soil mix. Water is provided on site as well as basic hand tools. A small fee is required to secure a bed for a (renewable) six month term. The collected fees go towards future improvement projects. There will be opportunities to work on larger garden projects, such as composting, sheet mulching and landscaping as we develop this garden. We are hoping that novice and seasoned gardeners alike will come together to share knowledge and enthusiasm in one of the largest community garden projects on the Monterey Peninsula.
