    The Story of Our Garden.

    In 2009, the UC Master Gardener Program of Contra Costa County joined with the Contra Costa Times to begin the Our Garden project, in April 2013 we held our grand opening in our new, improved location, going strong ever since! 

    Our Garden is a focal point for UC Master Gardener educational activities, an ongoing collaborative edible garden managed by dedicated volunteers and supported by generous sponsors.  Short demonstrations and classes taught every Wednesday from April through October offer the public a free and open venue for up close and personal learning about the process of growing one's own food.  Special events supplement this outreach.  Food produced by Our Garden is donated to local charitable organizations.
