The Morgan Hill Community Garden started in July 2009 by three passionate founders. Other talented and enthusiastic members joined
along to get our current location approved by the City of Morgan Hill. The garden officially opened in October 2010. It is indebted to the financial and donation help of many businesses and individuals in our community. Members put in hours of sweat building 51 raised garden plots and filling them with soil and compost. The plot waiting list was growing. The City approved an expansion of the lot where 25 new plots were built in 2015.
Classes are taught through the year by Master Gardeners of Santa Clara County and others. A City Art Grant project with the theme of soil appreciation was installed at the garden in 2015 which is still in place.
A fire station is slated to be built where our original garden is located. The City has found us a larger piece of land to relocate. With the help of a grant from the Open Space Authority, we can make up to 98 raised beds and have more room to grow. Members are already transitioning to the new location and we should be out of the original location by Jan. 31, 2020. There is much potential to make the Garden even better with the help of our talented membership.
The mission of our organization is to bring the community of Morgan Hill together to reap the benefits of growing food in a social setting, while providing education on gardening, environmental sustainability, health, nutrition, and human welfare.
