NGAC’s Ninos Community Garden Plot Update

 

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

Each year we have 5 harvests over the course of the summer, each donated to local food banks.  These are photos from 2021.

NGAC members also provide a volunteer resource for the Ninos Community Garden’s maintenance and site clean-up.

Please contact Nancy Kapellas at nkapellas@natomasgac.org if you are interested in gardening with the NGAC.
