Our garden is located in the southeast corner of Sunnyvale’s Charles Street Community Garden at 433 Charles Street near Olive [Google maps directions]. You can visit us every Tuesday morning from 9:30 to 11:30, or at any of our monthly talks.

The garden was built in the spring of 2006. It showcases vegetables and ornamentals growing in raised beds, in-ground beds and containers.

We are focused on teaching and demonstrating:

  • organic and sustainable methods of gardening
  • no dig, low till soil cultivation
  • water-wise irrigation techniques
  • crop protection from critters
  • cover crops for soil enrichment
  • beneficial insects in managing pests
  • California native plants
  • beautiful garden design

You can learn more about what we’re growing by reading the interpretive signs located at each bed. Look for more in-depth information on our bulletin board on the kiosk near the parking lot gate.

Bring your gardening questions on your next visit.
