Currently, the Dayton Solidarity Garden remains open. We ask that garden members please practice social distancing, remaining at least 6 feet away from other members. Wash or sanitize your hands frequently, avoid touching your face.
For your safety and the safety of other members, please do not come to the Garden if you have ANY symptoms of COVID-19, including cough, fever or shortness of breath, or if you are a member of a high-risk group, or have been in contact with someone who may be affected.
The Solidarity Garden encourages individuals to take an active role in what they eat and to create opportunities to enjoy and savor locally grown produce. We believe that people come together over food, and what better way to provide nourishment and build a sense of community than a lovely garden where people from all different backgrounds can come to live, grow, learn and heal together. Located in the heart of our 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.
Garden memberships are FREE for SNAP recipients or food pantry visitors. Community Members who do not meet these criteria can become garden members for a $20 annual membership fee.
Spaces in the garden are reserved on a first-come, first-served basis beginning on February 15 for members in good standing who wish to renew, and open on March 1 to the general public. You will be assigned your very own garden plot. Please do not start planting until the Garden Coordinator has assigned your space. We also have handicap-accessible spaces for those with mobility challenges. Please let the garden coordinator know if you wish to have one of these spaces.
