We Do Gardening
Whether it’s being outside, connecting with nature, nurturing plants, seeing the results of hard work, or observing birds, bees, and butterflies – gardening is universally enjoyed. And through building healthy soil, encouraging wildlife, and stewarding the land, gardening can support conservation!
The RCD provides opportunities and resources for San Diego residents to get involved in gardening, be it at a community garden, at their school, or in their own front or back yard.
We manage the largest community garden in the county, with 210 garden plots, six ¼ acre mini-farms, and a demonstration garden. The community garden is located within the Tijuana River Valley Regional Park. Learn more
Pollinators like monarch butterflies are crucial to our food supply and landscapes. Through our Milkweed for Monarchs program, we support schools to create pollinator habitat on their grounds. Learn more
