6th Street Community Garden
The 6th Street Greenway Community Garden is an open, gleaning garden in the heart of the Iron Triangle neighborhood in Richmond, California. It’s located on the Richmond Greenway between Ohio and Chanslor Ave and runs from 6th street to 4th Street.
We currently collectively grow a wide variety of seasonal vegetables and herbs year around free for the community to harvest. The Greenway Community Gardens include 1000 sq ft of edible raised bed growing space where we grow vegetables and herbs, a 22 tree citrus orchard, Berryland, our 2000 sq ft – all berry garden section, a small olive grove, peach tree, avocado tree and fig tree and 12,000 sq ft pollinator and native plant beds. The garden also includes seating and picnic areas, a new restroom, tools shed and compost bin.
In 2018-2019, we plan on adding a permanent FREE Farm Stand, where we can give away washed vegetables, harvested at their peak to community members FREE of charge, grape, thornless blackberry and passion flower arbors to create shade of the benches in Berryland and an outdoor classroom space so we have a space to launch our 1st series of home gardening workshops on the Greenway next Spring!
Our rebuilt Berryland now boasts:
- 350 Strawberry plants
- 60 Raspberry plants
- 30 Blueberry bushes
- 1 Gumi berry bush
And there’s more to come…
Come and visit the Greenway Community Gardens! There are no fences, and the gardens are open 24 hours a day!
