SSCG is comprised of a diverse membership from many neighborhoods, ages, backgrounds, employment, abilities and skill level-- learning and growing our own food.  We have a common desire to garden nutrient rich food, herbs and flowers and to do so organically.  If you want to join us, we welcome you into this community.  

Please note, this site is new (2019).  Every year, we'll add new function to this website, and this process of registration will become more and more simple.  Thank you for your patience.

Presently SSCG has two primary projects in need of donated expertise and materials.  These involve construction, irrigation, and plot mapping.  Another need is tree expertise for some neighbor tree overhang.  If you have materials you'd like to donate or expertise in these areas, we surely would like to hear from you.
