Second Start Community Garden is a registered non-profit, 60 plot rich, organic garden.  It's managed by and for the community.  In 2019, SSCG raised plots fees from $50 per plot to $60 per plot, still putting these fees well below other area community gardens.  


Historically, roughly 1/3 of registering gardeners fall sometimes significantly below the poverty line, measuring against 45K annual income for a family of 4.  SSCG has a sliding fee scale that supports these families.  

We need your support and since SSCG is a 501c3 registered non-profit, you can tell the tax man about your good deeds.
