CULTIVATE. EDUCATE. CELEBRATE.
The mission of the Food Bank Garden is to cultivate a community committed to local food production and increased local food security, through education and demonstration of high-altitude gardening techniques.
Educate the community on sustainable, high-altitude gardening techniques
Encourage food security + self-reliance by growing fresh fruit, vegetables and herbs
Inspire the spread of more home gardens throughout the local community
Provide fresh, locally grown food to the Sierra Community House (formerly known as Project Mana)
Promote a beautiful + vibrant space for our community to enjoy
Learn to grow your own edible plants at our free workshops focusing on high elevation organic gardening. All participants have the option to purchase affordable starter plants to take home for their own gardens. Need a garden to grow in? You can rent a garden bed in the NEW Truckee Community Garden.
THE GARDEN IS LOCATED...
behind the baseball field in the Truckee River Regional Park, 10500 Brockway Rd, Truckee, CA. From Brockway Road, turn onto Estates Drive (at the Skate Park) and head straight into the park entrance (rather than following the road to the right). Park there and follow the dirt path that leads towards the "Music in the Park" venue. All are welcome!
