Welcome!

Charles Street Gardens is an organic community garden located in the heart of Sunnyvale–it is located at 433 Charles Street and it’s open to all Sunnyvale residents. Whether you want to till your own plot, help in the group garden, or learn new garden skills and approaches, we’d love to have you join us.

We currently have a waiting list for individual garden plots, but please fill out the form here and we’ll add you to the list of eager gardeners. And if you’d like to dig in right away, you can join our group garden; just mention your group garden interest in the “how did you hear about us” field.

In addition to the 92 individual garden plots, our Food Forest project grows hundreds of pounds of food for hungry families, and the Master Gardeners’ demonstration garden shows examples of a wide variety of things that work well in Sunnyvale gardens. Come on by to see what’s growing.

We’ve had trouble with vandalism in the past, so unfortunately we have to keep the garden gates locked unless there’s someone in the garden. Please feel free to give us a shout when you see us working away or to drop by when we’ve got an event scheduled. We hope to see you soon!

Want to be kept in the loop on what’s going on in the gardens? Email charlesstgardens@gmail.com and we’ll keep you informed.
