More on The Californer
The Vietnamese Heritage Garden's community garden was constructed several years ago and has recently been invested in and restored to improve access and opportunity for use of the garden space. This investment now includes 15 additional garden plots, including four ADA accessible plots, for a total of 51 garden plots at the site. As a newly established community garden it will receive ongoing City support.

The City's Community Garden Program provides affordable, rentable garden plots for residents to cultivate and harvest their own organic vegetables. To learn more about the community garden program or be placed on a waitlist for a garden plot, visit the Community Garden Program web page.
