Village Circle

Community Garden

The Village Circle Community Garden was developed in Summer 2014. This garden closed in July 2020. There were 47 garden plots here serving the families of the former Cleveland Lane Community Garden, the Summer Creek Apartments directly behind the garden, and the surrounding neighborhood. This garden also had a greenhouse used by gardeners to encourage saving and growing plants from seed, as well as for season extension so more food could be grown each year. 

The Cleveland Lane Garden was the first community garden in Ukiah in 2000. In 2015 after 15 great years of gardening, the gardeners had to be relocated because of new development with the Grace Hudson Museum and new affordable housing units being constructed. The City of Ukiah worked with the Gardens Project to identify new land for these gardeners, and that’s where the Village Circle garden began.

Unfortunately, the garden was closed in July 2020 when the property owners changed and the land was slated for development. Gardens Project staff worked closely with the community gardeners to relocate gardeners to nearby community garden plots. 

Video from the development of this garden is included in our 2016 Fundraising Video, “Let’s EAT!”, which also gives a great overview of our work.
