The City of Monrovia will launch the Monrovia Community Garden Pilot Program with a formal Ribbon Cutting on Saturday at 9 a.m. at 303 W. Colorado Blvd. The entire community is invited to join the celebration.

The Community Garden has garden beds which include:

  • Individual irrigation for each garden bed.
  • Organic soil in each plot.
  • An educational demonstration garden.
  • Permanent fencing.
  • Decomposed granite pathways.
  • Fruit trees that have started to bear fruit.

The garden was designed to provide the community with a variety of opportunities to learn about urban gardening and sustainability, while providing interested families with a space to grow their own garden. Out of the 27 individuals who applied, 21 burgeoning gardeners were accepted for the available private garden plots and they have already started gardening.
