Welcome to our garden!  


Charles Street Gardens is an organic community garden located in the heart of Sunnyvale–it is located at 433 Charles Street and 92 Sunnyvale residents garden here. 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 our team of volunteers [see our Volunteer Page].

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 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.

We hold special community events throughout the year, and we are normally open to the public two days a week (weather permitting):

OPEN:  (most) Saturdays from 10am to 2pm

OPEN:  all Tuesdays from 11am to 1pm


[Note that the Santa Clara Master Gardeners are there from 9-11am on Tuesdays to answer your gardening questions.  Have an issue with your garden?  Just ask for advice.]

Come by and see what we have achieved!

Thanks to UCCE Master Gardener DJ DeProspero for coming to Charles Street Garden yesterday to talk about pest management.  She gave an informative presentation on the effective and environmentally sensitive approach to dealing with pests in the garden.  It was a great talk as she showed live examples (with magnifying glass) of pests on their leafy habaitats.  Thanks to all of those who attended.

Join us in the garden this afternoon from 1-3PM today (Saturday, May 14th) to learn about Pest Management from the Santa Clara Master Gardeners. The talk is FREE! We hope to see you here. ... See MoreSee Less
