How To Get Involved in The Funston Garden Community

Get Out & Get Your Hands In The Soil
Do you like gardening or want to learn about gardening? Come on over to the garden and get your hands dirty with us. You can even adopt a bed and grow your own vegetables!
Sponsor a Garden Bed
A community garden has amazing effects on individuals and their neighborhoods. All of the seeds, soil, tools, and water cost money. If you would like to help the Funston Garden grow, consider sponsoring a bed in the garden
Hang Out In The Garden
You don’t have to get your hands dirty to join in the Funston Garden community. Feel free to just come and hang out when you have some free time. One of the best parts of the community garden is how it brings together all kinds of people and creates a more connected community.

Why a Community Garden?

Residents and groups in the SoCe Neighborhood were able to look at an empty lot and see a potential resource instead of a liability. Now, that vision is bearing fruit (and veggies).

The Community Garden is:
  • Beautifying the neighborhood and generating more community pride and involvement.
  • Connecting participants of all ages and abilities to nature and the earth.
  • Offering space where people can work together.
  • Providing access to healthy, delicious food in metropolitan areas.

How did The Funston Neighborhood Garden get started?

The Funston Neighborhood Garden is the collaborative effort of several individuals and groups. The property, located at the corner of S. Broadway and Funston St. in the SoCe Neighborhood, is owned by Cleartalk Communications.

Cleartalk Communications has partnered with the South Central Neighborhood Association to oversee the garden. The Neighboring Movement, Legacy GardenWorks, and volunteers from the SoCe neighborhood have combined efforts to organize the property, prepare it for gardening, and start growing on it!
