Growing Our Community One Seed At A Time
The Gilroy Demonstration Garden is Gilroy’s first and only community garden. We offer a collaborative gardening space in the heart of Downtown Gilroy, on Eigleberry between 6th and 7th St., that invites volunteers to come help farm our ¾ acre plot. In exchange, volunteers are encouraged to take home fresh produce for them and their families for their efforts. We welcome volunteers of all ages and gardening skill sets. Please contact us at anytime with any questions, comments, or feed back.
