Eldorado School Community Garden

If you would like to participate in the 2015 growing season, please contact Carol Robles at (240) 478-8685 or via e-mail at eldogarden2015@comcast.net.

We are a group of Eldorado residents who, in collaboration with the El Dorado Community School, are dedicated to the creation and stewardship of sustainable gardens in our community. We also foster a wonderful learning environment for students.

In 2009, we turned 1.5 acres of native Eldorado land into a beautiful and bountiful community garden. Our garden is herbicide and pesticide free, and we offer a variety of spaces for organic gardening. Our beautiful garden includes a large gardening area for students, a labyrinth, perennial and cactus gardens, trees, a picnic area, tool shed, greenhouse and a shady portal. Please join us – we welcome your participation.
We offer:
• A great opportunity for social interactions
• Lots of healthy, outdoor exercise
• A spot to grow organic, flavorful food
• Education about sustainability and land stewardship
• A chance to contribute food to our local food banks at harvest time
• Satisfaction that comes with a community endeavor
Either communal or individual plots are available. Our individual plots are 4’ x 8’, either raised or sunken. All plots are allocated on a first-come basis. We also require that all of our members serve on one of our committees, which include: Operations, Education, Communal Garden, Perennials, Compost, Finance, Social and Communications/PR/Membership.
