Gardens at Gus Garica community garden



Founded in 2013 through a unique partnership between City of Austin, Sustainable Food Centerm, and St. David's Foundation, Gardens at Gus Garcia is the only community garden on City of Austin park land and one of only two community gardens in Austin with ADA accessible garden plots. We have a diverse garden, including a Senior Serenity Garden, an urban orchard planned in early 2016, and the only ADA accessible keyhole garden in Austin.

Garden plots are available for lease on a yearly basis to persons living in the surrounding community. Access to the Senior's garden area is granted to members of the Seniors Group at the Gus Garcia rec center. Community beds are 5x16' for $50 per year. Sign up today! We have 30 beds and workdays are scheduled monthly.
