A Creative Community in Sacramento

We are the Collective


The Natomas Garden & Arts Collective (NGAC) began its existence in 2017 as a group of like-minded neighbors. Their goal of enriching the community through gardening and arts continues as it works with other non-profit community groups like the Gardenland Northgate Neighborhood Association, The Stanford Settlement, Second Saturday in Natomas and Chalk It Up… creating a collective to serve all our neighbors. 
Monthly NGAC Membership Meetings


The NGAC has continued to hold our monthly gatherings (via zoom) since March 2020 during the required social distancing of the COVID pandemic.  Now that we can gather together again, we meet every other month in-person at the South Natomas Community Center, keeping up with our zoom friends on the other months. Join our mailing list for dates and times.

Our meetings, whether in person or via Zoom are free and open to all. monthly gatherings are on the FOURTH WEDNESDAY OF THE MONTH at 6pm.

Our gatherings are intended to be informative, fun, and family friendly. Alternating between in person and online zoom gatherings, makes meetings accessible to more people. Check our calendar for locations and details. NGAC Members will receive an email with the monthly meeting zoom link.

New Signage at Grassland Garden


INSTALLED!! Three educational signs have been created and installed at the Grassland Garden.
Pictured is the “Flyers” sign. You will also find a sign for “Grasslands” and “Pollinators” which will increase your enjoyment of the garden.
Not only are these signs beautiful and educational, the NGAC has uploaded all the pictures and text onto this website with a translation functionality.
When you are in the garden, simply hover your phone over the sign’s QR code to see the sign’s content in the language of your choice.

Take a peek right now at these three new pages:


Come be a part of this great community asset. We have workdays scheduled each month. Location is Ninos Parkway @Edmonton Drive, by Rio Tierra Jr. High School in South Natomas. See the calendar for date and details.
