We take great pride in our four amazing gardens, which are paid for by annual plot fees and built and maintained using volunteer labor.
Mack Park Garden
Mack Park is a gardener's garden. Located at the top of Mack Park, the in-ground plots here are huge. The experience of Mack Park's gardeners is obvious, as their crops are unique, beautiful, and clearly bountiful. Plots are $40 for the season.
