In July of 2021 Normal Heights lost the Vera House community garden when the lot was sold for the construction of a new home, leaving neighbors few options to grow their own food. There is a community garden planned for Ward Canyon Park but it is not due for installation for several years.
The Normal Heights Community Garden project, with funding and support from The Selby Team, local organizations, and individual donors will install and care for a new community garden along East Mountain View Drive between 4603 and 4621 intersecting with Cherokee Ave.
- 10 plots (or more)
- Land is owned by the City of San Diego
- Water is paid for by project and usage fees
- Garden will be managed by a volunteer
- Local area has priority on usage
We’re pleased to share that the Selby Team has generously committed $5,000 in matching funds! This means every dollar you donate will be matched, doubling your impact on bringing our community garden to life. Donations are also tax deductible!
Project sponsors will be included on the garden signage.
