Friends of the Market Community Garden , at Plaza 501, was started in 2018 and has expanded to include the house and property at 28 Suburban Ave. This addition has made it possible to partner with UCP Heartland, a day care center serving developmentally disabled clients suffering from cerebral palsy, autism, Down syndrome, and others.  These clients are primarily wheelchair bound and we’ve been busy making the house accessible for indoor, year round gardening.  There are some ambitious plans in the works to provide outdoor accessible garden areas including special raised beds, wall mounted strawberry beds, a greenhouse, and container garden areas.

In addition to the accessible areas, we’ll be putting in more garden beds,  flower beds, and an outdoor yoga area for our members’ use.
