Growing Our Community, One Seed At A Time
The Gilroy Demonstration Garden is a non-profit, teaching, learning, and demonstration garden open to our community. The garden offers a collaborative gardening space, in the heart of Downtown Gilroy (Eigleberry between 6th and 7th), that invites volunteers to come farm the ¾ acre plot. Volunteers take home fresh produce and plant starts to grow their own vegetable gardens. Unlike most community gardens, there is no individual ownership of plots. We welcome volunteers of all ages and gardening skill sets. Please contact us at anytime with any questions, comments, or feedback.
