SLV Community Gardens

butterfly gardenThe Community Gardens brings our community together by producing sustainable foods and uniting the community through growing education. It is an opportunity for growers to learn from each other and to encourage gardening participation.

We invite the whole family to attend the community gardens, there are plenty of educational workshops for garden growing and nutrition along with lots of activities including youth summer programs for the kids to enjoy!

Please refer to the Legend on the Producers page »» to reference the circle practice icons.


COMMUNITY GARDENS - Alamosa, Antonito, Del Norte, Saguache

High Valley Community Center

The HVCC community garden is located on the north end of the HVCC property. It's flourished since it began in 2010 under the careful eye and skilled hands of many volunteer gardeners. We can't mention the garden, however, without acknowledging a debt of gratitude and appreciation to Suzanne Gosar and Pauline Washburn for their amazing green thumbs, tons of hard work, and overall generosity. Each summer the Summer Arts & Rec students learn about caring for the garden and eating the produce.
