The Solidarity Garden encourages individuals to take an active role in what they eat by growing and harvesting their own food. Gardening can be a rewarding experience, and time spent in the garden is relaxing and fun!
By providing growing space along with guidance and support from local gardeners, the Solidarity Garden creates opportunities to enjoy and savor your very own fresh produce.
We believe that people come together over food. We can’t think of a better way to provide nourishment and build a sense of community than a garden where people from all different backgrounds can come to grow, learn and heal together.
Located in the heart of the Dayton community, it is our hope that the Garden will serve not only as a focal point for local food and a venue to learn about agriculture, but also as a supportive, nurturing space where members of the community feel welcome and accepted.
How to Sign Up
We’re so glad you want to join us!
Garden memberships are FREE for SNAP recipients or those with current registrations at the Dayton Food Pantry.
Our friends in the community who do not meet these criteria are welcomed as garden members for a $25 annual membership fee. This fee helps to cover water and utilities at the garden.
Spaces in the garden are reserved on a first-come, first-served basis beginning in mid-February for members in good standing who wish to renew, and in early March to the general public. You will be assigned your very own garden plot. Please do not start planting until you have been assigned your space. We also have handicap-accessible growing tables for those with mobility challenges. Please let the garden coordinator know if you wish to have one of these spaces.
For those without access to a computer or printer, hard copies of the registration form will be available at the Dayton Food Pantry and Community Roots Nursery beginning in mid-February. Stop by 209 Dayton Valley Rd. to pick up a form.
Forms and payment (if required) can be turned in at Community Roots Monday through Friday 10am-4pm, or at the garden during “Office Hours”, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10-12.
Gardening has proven to reduce stress, improve health, and create a deeper relationship with the food we eat. Research has also shown that people are more likely to try fresh foods if they have had a hand in growing them, so we hope that this garden will be an avenue to introduce people to new, healthy food options.
The Garden is located at 60 2nd Street in Dayton.
