About the Benson Community Garden
Founded in 2010, the Benson Community Garden provides space for individuals and families to grow fruits and vegetables for their personal consumption. Outside the fenced area is a “Neighbor Garden” with 300+ square foot space of free tomatoes, squash and peppers – free for the taking. Benson Community Garden’s mission is “…to strengthen our community by providing an urban agricultural space where individuals and families can come together to grow farm-fresh foods, share tools and resources, and learn about gardening and nutrition.”
