April 27 is Spring Festival at the Garden for all lessees
There will be a celebration of spring, plant sharing, and time for lessees to get to know each other. We also hope that folks will take this opportunity to mulch their pathways to minimize weed growth.

We are now on Facebook!
Barrington Community Garden now has a Facebook page. This is a great place to post photos, ask questions (What is this weird bug on my squash), ask others for favors (Can anyone water my plot while I'm out of town), and more.
Left: One of the many donations that the Barrington Community Garden has made to TapIn, which serves East Bay residents in need. In 2018, we donated close to 300 pounds of food.
We take great pride in caring for our dedicated garden plots where we grow organic food that we distribute to those in need.
