We grow food

 

Welcome to Benicia Community Gardens!

Sustainable Solano started with the creation of its first garden, Swenson Garden, named after the late Dr. Swenson in gratitude for his vision and contribution to community sustainability at the time, on the property of Heritage Presbyterian Church in 1999. We now maintain two community gardens, one community orchard and a donation community share plot where we donate food to people in need.
