Very simply, it is:
Any piece of land gardened by a group of people.

It can be urban, suburban, or rural. It can grow flowers, vegetables or community. It can be one community plot, or can be many individual plots. It can be at a school, hospital, or in a neighborhood. It can also be a series of plots dedicated to "urban agriculture".

About Us

Mission statement
Pasadena Community Gardens is dedicated to developing community gardens in Pasadena so residents can:

  • Plant vegetables, fruits, and flowers
  • Transform abandoned, vacant properties into attractive and beneficial edible community gardens
  • Learn about the benefits of sustainable, eco-friendly gardening and preservation of these gardens for generations to come
  • Participate in educational opportunities that promote health and well-being

Our history - trace our roots
On a cool, sunny Saturday morning in January of 2010, a group of 12 Pasadena citizens came together over a shared vision: to start a community garden. What was clear at the time was that:

  • There were no public community gardens in Pasadena.
  • There was a need and desire for community gardens in Pasadena.
  • There were many vacant properties in Pasadena that could serve as a community garden.
  • The City of Pasadena was on record as wanting community gardens.
  • It was up to us to take action — to organize and to create a community garden that would serve as a model for others who wished to create additional community gardens in neighborhoods throughout Pasadena.
