Community Gardens


Thank you for your interest in our community garden program, unfortunately we are unable to add any more gardeners to our waitlist at this time.

The City of Redlands operates three separate Community Gardens within the City. The three garden plots are the Clement Community Garden located adjacent to Clement Middle School, Smiley Community Garden adjacent to Smiley Elementary School, and Lugonia Community Garden located east of Texas Street between Lugonia and Pennsylvania avenues.

The Community Gardens are open to residents of the City of Redlands. Plots may used to grow vegetables, herbs, and flowers. The City provides the water, but gardeners provide their own hoses. The gardens are open during daylight hours. The garden is open from dawn to dusk 7 days a week.
