We encourage people of all ages to grow their own healthy vegetables. We beautify our neighborhood with an ornamental garden and park area on the property. We strive to get young people involved with gardening. Come join the fun of learning and growing healthy food and beautiful plants. The public is invited to walk through the gardens and to enjoy the park area.
Our purpose is to operate a non-commercial community garden devoted to teaching gardeners and community members how to grow healthy food by introducing organic gardening techniques, relieving food scarcity by providing plots to families or individuals who do not have access to them, and to beautifying the green space it inhabits. It further cultivates and distributes produce to area food pantries. To that end, the RVACG has the following mission statements: 1. To provide garden plots to River Valley residents and other authorized persons who do not have access to adequate land upon which to grow, nurture and harvest healthy and nutritious food. 2. To distribute surplus production from individual and community garden plots to food pantries and otherwise to families and individuals in need. 3. To provide educational opportunities pertaining to sustainable gardening, gardening techniques and harvesting. 4. To provide through gardening, the benefits of a healthy lifestyle throughout the community. 5. To improve the quality of life of the community by giving its members the opportunity to participate in and appreciate the gardening experience. 6. To preserve and improve the beauty of the area through planting of native and nonnative plants.
