Green & Gold Garden

The Green & Gold Community Garden is a community garden with both local and global benefits. We grow over 60 types of vegetables, herbs and flowers, using organic gardening practices. Our produce is freshly picked and available during twice-weekly markets for a donation based on fair market prices.

Tubahumurize

All donations for Garden produce go to support the Tubahumurize Association in Rwanda, a not-for-profit organization that supports socially and economically marginalized women through counselling, vocational training, health education, microcredit loans and employment opportunities.

In Memoriam

It is with profound grief and sadness that we are letting you know that Dr. Shirley Ross, a founder of the Green & Gold Community Garden, and its long-time manager and driving force, has passed away.
