About Us

What is a Community Garden? We are part of an international movement. To understand us better, watch this video, made by one of our members who is also a professional filmmaker. The film has been shown at the New Mexico Filmmakers Showcase, REEL New Mexico, and the Society of Women Geographers sustainabilityconference.

Plan of the El Dorado School Community Garden.

We offer:

• A great opportunity for social interactions

• Lots of healthy, outdoor exercise

• A spot to grow organic, flavorful food

• Education about sustainability and land stewardship

• A chance to contribute food to our local food banks at harvest time

• Satisfaction that comes with a community endeavor

Either communal or individual plots are available. Our individual plots are 4’ x 8’, either raised or sunken. All plots are allocated on a first-come basis. Every member serves on one of our committees, which include: Operations, Education, Communal Garden, Perennials, Compost, Finance, Social and Communications/PR/Membership. For more specific information, go to our Membership pages.
