NGAC’s Ninos Community Garden Plot Project Update

NGAC maintains a 20′ x 20′ plot in the Ninos Community Garden located in South Natomas.  Club members and supporters are welcome to participate.  This is an excellent opportunity for NGAC members to learn and practice their gardening skills in a large and very sunny garden plot!!

Much of the food grown here in the club’s plot is donated every season to various local food banks. NGAC members also provide a volunteer resource for the Ninos Community Garden’s maintenance and site clean-up.

NGAC’s plot in the Ninos Community Garden has produced a bountiful summer harvest last year!  Club members planted a variety of tomatoes, squash, watermelon, beans, and peppers, along with zinnias, cosmos and bachelor buttons.  We had 5 harvests over the course of the summer, each donated to a local food bank.  See pics!.

We are gearing up to start our spring/summer garden and are looking for members to be a part of our team for the planning, planting, maintenance, and periodic harvesting of the plot. 

Please contact Nancy Kapellas at nkapellas@natomasgac.org if you are interested!

Check Out Our Vision and Mission!

Incorporated on July 1, 2018, our mission is “Connecting and Enriching the community through Gardening and Arts”.
