Livermore Community Garden

Original post made by Christian on Jul 27, 2010

Reading the latest Livermore Independent's story on their Community Garden project, I'm curious as to why perhaps, Pleasanton hasn't begun a similiar project. Certainly there is enough open space and available plots that are underutilized. With a growing concern over the health and wellness of our youth, coupled with the learnings associated with growing fresh produce, it can be a transforming experience and lead a child towards healthier choices. As well as consideration to environmental impact.

Hi Christian. Pleasanton has had community garden plots at Val Vista Park since 2004. Take a hike down Stoneridge, turn south onto Johnson Drive, go into the park and take a look! You'll love it. The gardeners there are absolute artists with their flowers and vegetables, and they take great pride in their patches. There's a waiting list for the patches there, so if you have a good idea where another community garden should be located please come to a Parks and Recreation Commission meeting and make a suggestion! The Commission would love to hear from you.
