Established in 1976 by former Scottsdale resident Mark Miller, there are now nearly 200 Garden Members & Co-Gardeners. The Club was established in 1976 by former Scottsdale resident Mark Miller. Now more than 118 members and 80 co-gardeners strong, the group is made up of residents from Scottsdale, Paradise Valley, Phoenix and Mesa.
The Scottsdale Community Garden Club offers gardening experience for everyone from the total beginner to a master gardener. You garden on your own plot and members are there to guide you, share their experiences and give you a helping hand.
There is activity in the garden throughout the year since our mild winters allow for a fall/winter crop as well as the traditional spring planting. Most of the vegetables you may have grown elsewhere in the country will thrive in one or both of the two seasons. Sweet corn, carrots, beets, onions, lettuce, cabbage, tomatoes and radishes are just some of them you will find in many of the gardens throughout the year. Flowers and shrubs border some of the gardens.
The Club was incorporated in January 2012 and is currently applying for it's 501(c)3 certification with the Internal Revenue Service.
