Mt. Aloysius Community Garden...

An Inter-Generational Project

by: Jenny LaRue


The Mount Aloysius Community Garden Project offers raised and in-ground gardening beds.  The area is fenced. “Plant friendly” soil and water are provided. Plants are available from an on-site greenhouse.  Gardening skills and knowledge are shared among the growers and staff of Mount Aloysius.  Growers range in age from 27-70 and include several young families.  Plans for 2017 include an extension of the garden site, an orchard area and an on-site honor system produce stand.  This intergenerational garden area has become a social, community-building space, capable of bringing vitality into our rural community.
