The City of Monrovia, in partnership with Mountainside Communion, launched the Community Garden Pilot Program in July of 2019.

Both parties came together with a similar vision; to launch a community garden pilot program that would incorporate private raised beds for rent, educational workshops, community engagement, and public demonstration gardens for all of the community to enjoy.

All are welcome to visit the open public garden space, drop off your compost, or attend one of our garden workshops on the corner of Magnolia Ave. and Colorado Blvd.  

 2020 Workshops Announced! 

 We are happy to announce our workshops for 2020. The workshops include Tree Care, Kids' Gardening, Spring Veggies and Wise watering. Check out our list here and stay tuned for Bug, Pests, and Critters and Soil Science! 

 Put Your Name on the List for a Private Garden Bed!

We have 21 raised garden beds available for rent on an annual basis. At this time our garden beds are all rented, but you can put your name on the waitlist and you will be notified if a garden bed becomes available. Download a Waitlist Application here 

 Community Compost Bin Now Open!

Need a place to deposit your vegetable and fruit scraps, coffee grounds, and yard trimmings? Good news! The community compost bin is now open. Check out our Resource Page for more information and an instructional video.
