Welcome to our Community Garden website. We invite you to become a member of the South Coast Community Garden Association to help support our local group of community gardens.
Please visit our community gardens throughout the county. Explore them by using the links above. Sadly, the Earthworm Acres Community Garden in Myrtle Point has had to close.
South Coast Community Garden Association (SCCGA) was established in 2005 and is a non-profit Oregon Corporation. Its purpose is to provide community education about gardening, growing of foods and to provide and manage a place for individuals in the community to grow food for personal use.
Our goal is to create a regional community coalition to build community gardens, and to support the gardens with leadership and education. The gardens have support in volunteer labor, donations and funding grants. SCCGA membership is open to the public. Members are eligible to apply for a community garden plot for each garden season. Dues and garden fees are nominal and waivers for garden fees can be requested for those who need them. Member gardeners, the community, and visitors enjoy the gardens throughout the year.
The Coos County Master Gardeners Association provides on-site mentoring and public educational programs:
● Children’s Gardening Program
● Winter Gardening
● Seed Starting
● Vegetable Gardening
● Building a Kitchen Garden
