Welcome to Benicia Community Gardens!

We are a volunteer-based non-profit organization dedicated to creating a healthy, sustainable, community-based food system through hands-on learning, collaboration, and leadership.  Our programs help local residents learn how to grow their own edible ecosystems and increase access to fresh, wholesome foods produced by sustainable farms, dairies, and fisheries.
