AYUDA Community Garden
AYUDA is building a 50’x30’ community garden where squash, tomatoes, chile, corn, onions, cilantro, and other produce relevant to the Hispanic diet will be grown. The garden parcel has been cleared and is currently being prepared for next spring’s growing season with nutrient-rich compost. The garden will consist of 15 beds of 20’ x 3’ with drip irrigation hoses providing water to each individual bed. Each bed will have a hoop house built over it for the following purposes:
1) To protect the produce from inclement weather;
2) Extend the growing season well into the winter months; and
3) To protect the plants from roving animals and encroaching insects.
KGI is a nonprofit community of over 30,000 people who are growing some of our own food and helping others to do the same.
