How It Started + Goals for the Future

The Downtown Hammond Community Garden is a subproject of the DDD's Old Feed & Seed Revitalization Initiative.
What's planned for the future of the Community Garden? That's limited to only the imagine of the people in Downtown Hammond! We've discussed bed rentals, demonstration gardens, and a meditation area. Join us and bring even more possibilities to life!

The Community Garden is always in need of volunteers and supplies.

The next scheduled Volunteer Work Days are:
