“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world.  Indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has…”

The Mission of the San Carlos Community Garden is to Encourage:

      • Gardening for nutrition and beauty

      • Knowledge of healthy living and stewardship of the earth

      • Spirit through inspiration and healing

Get Involved

We are an all-volunteer operation and need the help of many!

The San Carlos Community Garden project seeks collaboration from community members of all ages, civic clubs, faith and non-faith based organizations and schools.


The San Carlos Community Garden was made possible through initial funding from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, through the County of San Diego.
