Alamo Community Garden is a collectively run urban garden that exists to provide space to its members to grow organic produce and to promote community. We are a small community group that makes decisions using a consensus process wherein we emphasize collaboration and compromise rather than majority rule. Originally an educational garden for youth, Alamo Community Garden now is home to both adults and children. The garden features 13 200-sq. ft. and 20 100-sq. ft. garden plots, a horticultural therapy bed built at wheelchair height, a composting station, a rainwater collection system, a raised deck meeting area, and purple martin house and bat house. We are a community organization that works together to maintain the garden; tending a personal plot is a privilege of membership. In joining the garden, you’re agreeing to do three things: attend meetings and/or workdays each month, do at least one hour per month of community labor, and (if you tend a personal plot) keep your plot weeded and under cultivation.
