Garden of Eatin'

This modern day Victory Garden demonstrates sustainable practices for growing vegetables in our own backyard with new methods. Unique seed selection is made each year to bring in edible plants. Watch for classes on how to grow your own vegetable garden, on-site cooking demonstrations, and how to manage the periodic pests. 

Members of the Garden of Eatin' Committee designed this special garden in 2017 to delight the visitor with its whimsy. From the winding paths to the shed to the use of tree stumps for fencing, you are sure to smile as you walk through the garden. You will also notice a three foot groundhog fence around the garden as we know there are critters in this are who will be equally as hungry as our visitors. 

This garden was made possible through generous grants provided by the Springfield Foundation as well as the Turner Foundation. We appreciate their ongoing support.
