The Community Gardens are open to all Palm Desert residents and business owners, whether they are novices or master gardeners. Palm Desert’s Community Gardens provide residents with an opportunity to learn the joys and benefits of gardening. They are a place to share gardening experiences, make new friends, gather advice, and learn.
Palm Desert has five community gardens. Four are located on the west side of San Pablo Avenue, between Fred Waring Drive and Highway 111. The fifth garden is located in Freedom Park at the south-east corner of Liberty Drive and Country Club Drive west of Washington Street.
You can sign up for a Community Garden by completing this agreement. Fees (listed below) cover the cost of the plot, amenities, use of utilities and facilities (water, restrooms, etc.). Plots are rented for a one (1) year period beginning October 1 thru September 30. Gardens are closed intermittently for maintenance and repairs in late summer. This season, 2017-2018, the San Nicolas garden is closed for a complete renovation.
The City has installed bulletin boards in all the gardens. These bulletin boards will provide information about gardening events and classes as well as helpful tips on related topics. Community gardeners are also encouraged to post their own messages or tips.
