Summit Community Gardens – We Grow To Give
Coming In Early 2018
We are currently planning adult gardening classes to start the end of January. It will be your chance to learn how to grow in this high desert climate. Details and schedule will be announced shortly. Contact us with any questions.
And if you’d like to help us shape those classes so they address the needs of our community, please fill out a short survey.
Introducing our new Beehive Sponsor:
Summit Community Gardens is excited to announce our new Beehive Sponsor, Ellie’s Private Chefs and Catering! The folks at Ellie’s are dedicated to supporting a number of local nonprofits in our community and they feature locally sourced ingredients in the seasonal cuisine they prepare for their clients.

The Garden Bounty Project has concluded for 2017! We donated over 1,000 pounds of fresh produce to those in need. If you aren’t familiar with our program, it’s our way of giving back to the community by donating fresh, organic produce we grow in our garden. We work with a number of local nonprofits who distribute our food to their clients. You can learn more about our program here.
And if you work for a nonprofit organization and are interested in becoming a recipient of this program, please fill out an application here.
If you haven’t seen our new garden yet, take a virtual Garden Tour here and learn about what makes our garden unique.
Our mission at Summit Community Gardens is to build and strengthen our community by educating, empowering, and providing an opportunity for people to grow their own food successfully and sustainably.
A little while ago we asked the local community what they wanted in a community garden. What we heard from you has guided our program to new heights, with a focus on garden education along with providing a place for people to meet up and start their own garden.
With this new perspective we have evolved the Summit Community Gardens program to include:
– educational classes for kids and adults
– garden plots the community can rent
– a gathering place where people can appreciate and learn about a beautiful garden space
And this inspired us to build a new garden (in conjunction with Basin Recreation) that will be a community destination for education, recreation and leisure. Learn more about it here.
