A Southside Community Garden


517 E. 3rd St. in the pocket park between Harrison & Park Streets

Support a neighborhood-led initiative to build a small community garden on the city's south side

Now, more than ever, we need healthy places to come together with our neighbors. We need places for all ages that support deep connections, joy and resilience.

A community garden that shares space with other activities in the pocket park will allow us to meet and work alongside our neighbors, support each other, and become more self-reliant. We want to learn how to grow our own food and support ourselves in a way that benefits our physical and mental well-being. 

The City of Cortez, Cortez Community Gardens and the Good Samaritan Food Pantry support this initiative, but we need help from our community, too.

We've raised $3500 so far and the city is providing land and water. We now need to raise funds for soil, fencing and irrigation.

Any donation is greatly appreciated. We hope to get the whole community involved in this project to help us make the garden a beautiful and fun place to be, for everyone.

Cortez Community Gardens is a project of the Good Samaritan Center Food Pantry, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit.

All donations are tax-deductible.
