About Us The Larkspur Community Garden began in 1982. It is a community of 73 small garden plots and a communal orchard for residents of Larkspur or Greenbrae . It is located in Piper Park. We encourage gardeners to grow vegetables and flowers using organic techniques and also encourage gardeners to grow as a community. We work together to learn about composting and watering, other gardeners' expertise and sharing harvests with local food banks in an ongoing year-round opportunity.
Each gardner is assigned a plot, roughly 15'x 17'.
Garden members recycle vegetable scraps, along with wood chips supplied by the city, to produce our own compost.
Gardeners participate in two garden-wide workdays per year, spring and fall, with improvement projects to clear weeds, repair tools and care for our orchard trees.
We receive recreation and hands-in-the-soil benefits.
If you are interested in joining the garden community and if you live in Larkspur or Greenbrae, sign up with the Larkspur Recreation Department. Dick Whitley, Recreation Director. Call (415) 927-6746.
A Killdeer lays it eggs on the bare ground in our orchard. The pair had three new chicks this year.
