The Seeds of Inspiration Community Garden is a “Grow together Share together Garden”. This means to gain access to fresh fruits and vegetables grown in the garden members must pay the annual fee and must volunteer no less than 2 hours per month in garden or community volunteer efforts, within or surrounding the garden areas. Volunteers may perform garden clean-up and duties, including pulling weeds, watering, planting etc. or participate in Neighborhood Clean-up efforts, such as litter removal and graffiti clean-up, etc. within the Oleander area.

Members who do not wish to volunteer may donate $5-20 per box of fresh fruits and veggies depending on quantity and availability of fresh food grown in the garden; this will vary from week to week and may not be available year round. Priority goes to volunteers who participate in the garden and volunteer activities. You may pick up produce on Mondays and Fridays between 9am-12pm. Please call 661-364-7868 to schedule a box for pick-up.

Annual Membership provides access to all free classes held at the garden or you can choose to pay $120 per year for an “All Access Pass” perfect for families.
