BOCA RATON COMMUNITY GARDEN 



The Boca Raton Community Garden is a partnership between The Junior League of Boca Raton(JLBR) and The City of Boca Raton.  Boca Raton Mayor Susan Whelchel has entrusted JLBR to design and construct a Community Garden near Boca's downtown library. The Community Garden is a beautiful, park-like space, where individuals or organizations can lease plots of land to grow fruits, vegetables, and flowers.



Our Mission Statement

The mission of the Boca Raton Community Garden is to cultivate the spirit of community and enhance quality of life by creating and sustaining an organic garden of vegetables, flowers, plants, and trees.  The garden will foster environmental sustainability and stewardship, advance horticultural and nutritional education, provide a beautiful and natural retreat, and produce a healthy supplemental food source for its gardeners and the hungry.

A Green and Sustainable Community
The Community Garden will support the City of Boca Raton's goal to be a leader in community sustainability and environmental stewardship.  Sustainability is meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. 

Goals of the Garden 
  • Provide environmental sustainability and encourage self-reliance

  • Neighborhood Beautification

  • Produce Nutritious Foods for Boca Helping Hands

  • Reduce Family Food Budgets

  • Conserve Resources

  • Create opportunity for recreation, exercise, therapy, and education

  • Reduce Crime

  • Preserve Green Space

Congratulations on a wonderful project. How about posting gardening help for those of us that are novices and want to start a garden in our back yards. Thank you
