Mission

Summit Community Gardens’ mission is to build and strengthen our community by educating and empowering people to grow their own food sustainably. We achieve this through gardening education to adults and children, garden plot rentals, and community events.

Vision

The vision for this community-based garden is that it would serve as a destination to gather, learn, and grow.

History

This space is now home to 88 community garden plots, perennial demonstration beds, vegetable demonstration beds, a beehive, a kids’ garden, and a compost center.
