Sanchez Community Garden

    The community garden was originally built by Growing Gardens and currently is managed by parents with help from the Sister Carmen Community Center.  The community garden consists of 10 plots and is able to support 20 families. It is used by community members as well as Sanchez families. Each plot is planted with one or two vegetables. 
     
     
    Members of the Sanchez Community Garden must commit to the following:
    • Weeding and watering one plot throughout the growing season
    • Working for a minimum of one hour per week 
    • Keeping dogs and pets out of the garden
    • Making sure that children working in the garden are accompanied by an adult
    • Harvesting from any plot at any time
    We are currently supported by generous donations, sponsors, and grants from the Sanchez PTA, Lafayette Lumber, JAX, Jamba Juice, Sister Carmen Community Center, Lafayette Florist, Lowe's and Northfield Farms.
