Community Dig-In at Slow Food Lake Tahoe's Food Bank Garden located in Truckee, CA

Need a garden to grow your own food?  You can rent a garden bed in the Truckee Community Garden or view plans to build your own.

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!
