The Funston Garden is ready to GROW!
There are currently garden boxes, a raised pollinator bed, and garden rows available for individuals or businesses to adopt.

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!
