We are a vibrant and sustainable community garden in the heart of the city. Join us in growing fresh produce, learning about sustainable practices, and building community.
The Root 66 Community Garden is a collaborative non-profit community project founded in 2014. Our mission is to create & sustain a community garden and FoodShare Project which will serve to improve the quality of life throughout the local communities of western San Bernardino County. The Root 66 Garden serves to educate, strengthen community spirit, create therapeutic environments and provide locally and organically grown fresh fruits and vegetables for the community.
There is a growing national awareness of the value of locally grown produce that can enhance the health and wellbeing of the community's citizens. With the development of the Root 66 Garden's FoodShare Project, it is our intention to increase the access to low-cost and free, locally grown fresh fruits and vegetables, a portion of which will be delivered to those who are home-bound.
Growing food together has the same value as breaking bread together, We get to know neighbors, develop strong family bonds, share information feel more connected to a larger community develop leadership skills, learn new skills and reduce stress. Join us as a new member. Grow food for your family and support your community
Cucamonga's first large agricultural development began in 1838. By 1917, Cucamonga's vineyards spanned over 20,000 acres. Rancho Cucamonga is also home to the first and oldest winery building in California, established in 1839 and identified as California Historic Landmark No. 490. Today, only a few of the valley's original wine growing family operations remain with less than 800 vineyard acres. Revitalizing our local history and preserving our viticulture heritage is a vital aspect of our history and community.
The Root 66 Community Garden provides educational opportunities, not only for our children, but for everyone within the community. Learn how to grow your own food, reconnect with the soil, and have a lifetime of health and well-being. We all need a place to play in the dirt. Monthly Self-sufficiency Workshops are offered all summer. Come enjoy our Kid's Learning Garden or register to learn how to start your own Urban Farming business or community garden.
We are dedicated to helping everyone find an affordable way to live an organic lifestyle. Even those living in apartments can be part of the food revolution. With rented raised planters or larger garden plots, growing your own organic food is easy! Newbies welcome!
