“The History of the Santa Monica Community Gardens”
In 1976, Santa Monica became the first city in the region to establish community gardens.
Main Street, Euclid Park, Park Avenue & Ishihara— It’s just the beginning!
The City of Santa Monica currently has 4 community garden sites
Main Street Gardens, 2200 Main Street / 73 individual garden plots;
Park Drive North and South, Park Drive off of Broadway / 38 individual garden plots;
Euclid Park, 1515 Euclid / 11 individual garden plots and 3 workshop plots;
The newest addition is the Learning Garden at Ishihara Park 2909 Exposition Blvd which serves as Santa Monica’s first Communal Garden as well as an Urban Agriculture Education Site. In an effort to expand gardening knowledge to the many apartment dwellers around the City, workshops and tours of the garden and adjacent Urban Fruit Tree Orchard are planned to take place regularly throughout the year.
