Scott's Garden for Others is a community garden that supports families experiencing food insecurity by growing organic produce to share with local food banks. We do this by employing no-dig gardening methods and by welcoming the assistance of enthusiastic volunteers.

Grow with us

We welcome all volunteers.  No gardening experience is necessary - we will even provide gloves and tools.  We work hard and have a lot of fun planting, tending the soil, harvesting, and making new friends along the way.

No Dig Gardening

Scott's Garden for Others is committed to caring for our community and the earth.  We believe all families should have access to fresh produce grown using organic methods.  We also believe in being good stewards of the earth.  As such, we employ no dig gardening methods. By using no dig organic growing methods, we allow Mother Nature to provide the cultivation operations and regenerate the soil.   

The benefits of no-dig gardening include:

  • Building a healthy soil ecosystem that naturally supports pollinators, insects, birds, and other animals.

  • Providing nutrition plants need and reducing the need for fertilizers.

  • Reducing pesky weeds 

  • Making the garden more drought-resistant.

  • Retaining carbon in the soil, which helps mitigate climate change.

  • Growing a more biodiverse garden that produces more nutritious food and an environment that's equally good for your physical and mental well-being.
