We’re so excited! There’s a greenhouse and community garden at The Gardens at Heather Farm.

Greenhouse & Nursery

After several years of dedicated labor by staff, volunteers, contractors and the City of Walnut Creek, the new greenhouse facility at The Gardens, which also features a shade house, finally complete! Propagation is now going strong and our nursery is filling up with plant stock! We’re so excited to have our first-ever on-site growing facility which allows us to more easily and productively grow plants, serve the community and educate the public about nature. Plant sales to the public occur several times throughout the year and feature a wide array of specimens. Check out the dates for our next PLANT SALE.

Community Garden

Adjacent to the new greenhouse facility is our Community Garden featuring 80 raised beds, including several which are ADA accessible, available to rent for Walnut Creek residents. The community garden provides local individuals and families with a place to grow their own food and garden with the community. Large plots are 4×12′ and rent for $150 per year; small plots are 4×8′ and rent for $75 per year. A completed application and payment of the fee are required for all garden reservations. Fill out the garden request form below to be added to the waiting list.

A crew of dedicated volunteers built all the raised beds in our Community Garden!
