Rose Roots Community Plot Love

For all Gardeners to Share in Growing Community


Several community plots within our garden along with the stunning Pollinator garden at our entrance are designed to encourage gardeners to share these plots, garden together, and grow community within our garden. Each plot offers a unique learning experience and opportunity to connect with and learn from fellow gardeners.


As we approach our Ten Year Anniversary next season, long time gardeners have contributed to the growth, maintenance and development of these plots over the years to make them beautiful. These gardeners often have expertise in best maintenance practices, so it is helpful to contact our leadership to get connected with these informal groups. All are invited to work in any of these community spaces and any community space work goes towards the 12 service hours required per plot per season. All community plots offer the opportunity to sample, though pick lightly. The plots are outlined below this map of the garden quadrants:
