Frequently Asked Questions

What kinds of produce do you offer?
We grow and sell a wide range of produce including leaf crops (salad greens, lettuce, kale, Swiss chard, spinach, mustard greens, sorrel), seed crops (peas, beans, corn), root crops (carrots, beets, parsnips, turnips, rutabaga), vine crops (squash, cucumbers, zucchini, pumpkins), plus onion, leeks, garlic, potatoes, tomatoes, herbs, assorted other vegetables (peppers, tomatillos, artichokes, Jerusalem artichokes, broccoli, kohlrabi, cabbage, Chinese cabbage), some fruit (strawberry, elderberry), and flowers. The produce that we have available changes throughout the season, so please check our Produce Available page or sign up to our weekly email for updates on what we are currently harvesting.
Where can I buy your produce?
Produce is available from the sales stall that we set up at the Garden during market times. For our location and current market hours, please check our Visit Us page.
How much does your produce cost?

Garden produce is available during our twice-weekly markets. Our prices are comparable to what you would pay for organic produce at a Farmers’ Market. All proceeds from Garden produce go to support the Tubahumurize Association for women in Rwanda.

What forms of payment do you accept for produce?

We can accept cash (preferred) or debit (most sales days) as payment for Garden produce. (Our occasional lack of internet connectivity means we are sometimes unable to accept cards, so please use cash if possible.)

Can I pick my own produce?
The Garden is not a U-Pick. Garden volunteers will happily pick the produce for you.
Can I make a financial contribution to Tubahumurize?

Yes, in addition to sales of Garden produce and handicrafts from Tubahumurize, we accept direct donations for the Tubahumurize Association. Cheques should be made payable to the Green & Gold Community Garden. We can provide a receipt for your donation (please know that it is not a tax receipt).
