Community Garden PosterThe Hermosa Beach Community Garden is located at South Park (425 Valley Drive). The garden was renovated in 2016 thanks to a group of dedicated volunteers and has 55 planter boxes. The garden also has fruit trees and planter boxes for community organizations to serve the homeless and economically disadvantaged residents.

Garden plots are now filled, but you can still get on the wait list using the link below.

You can sign up online using the link . For all online applicants, the $150 check is due ONE WEEK from signups. $100 of this is the deposit, and the other $50 covers your first year of garden membership. If you wish to pay for two years, we will also accept a $200 check. If you do not pay by this time, YOUR PLOT WILL BE FORFEITED.

The Community Garden at South Park was one component of a major renovation to the park. Park renovations came about thanks to the community rallying around the project to secure several grants, host fundraisers, and provide donations. There's still work to be done, so if you'd like to make a donation to South Park and have your name engraved in one of the bricks, click here. You can also find the link to the YouCaring page and donate here.

Didn't score a planter box?
You can still be a part of the Hermosa Beach Community Garden! 
When the Hermosa Beach City Council originally envisioned the community garden, they wanted 20% of the growing space to benefit the homeless and economically disadvantaged residents of Hermosa Beach. These new 20% boxes around the perimeter of the garden will soon be built thanks to fundraisers, grants and City funds, but the labor in the garden will come from St. Cross Episcopal Church--and from volunteers like you!!!

In the demonstration garden, members of St. Cross Episcopal Church in Hermosa grew over 500 lbs of food for various programs benefiting the populations we want to serve. In the new garden we could use your help gardening these 20% boxes. It's a great way to give back to the community, get to work in the garden and have some fun at South Park!!

If you or your group of volunteers is interested in helping to grow food for donation, please contact Mervis at to learn more and discuss the possibilities!
