The Juneau Community Garden is located in Juneau, Alaska is a non-profit group of gardeners helping to provide a site for individuals to pursue their gardening hobbies in a productive and cooperative environment. The garden is fenced, with water and basic tools available and there is a covered storage and meeting area.
Every autumn the garden hosts a garden fair, which has become increasingly popular with local residents. Several other activities are scheduled throughout the growing season which occurs between May and September. The garden works with other local groups such as the Master Gardeners, the Juneau Garden Club, and the Primrose Society and our local UAF Cooperative Extension Service representative.
Plots are available for a small fee and a few public service hours. There are also plots for:
• Charity – produce goes to the local food bank, the local homeless shelter, etc.
• Experimental Use – master gardeners recently conducted a multi-year test of iris and rhubarb varieties.
• Ornamental Plantings.
