Linda Civill Community Garden
The Linda Civill Community Garden gives people who would like to garden, but don’t have a yard to create his/her own, the opportunity to grow fresh produce. No experience is needed to participate; other experienced gardeners will help you get started and answer your questions throughout the growing season.
The garden is located right in the plaza along the stockade fence across from the stores.
If you have a garden of your own and still want to help, or you wish to lend a hand without the responsibility of a plot all your own, we’d be happy to put you to work! Other community groups are also welcome to participate.
The garden did not open in 2021. Check back in spring 2022 for opening plans.
Hope Full Life Center is proud to partner with STARS Intergen, an intergenerational community group, on this project.
This community garden is truly a community effort! We greatly appreciate Persico True Value Hardware for the donation of garden tools and bedding plants. Flach Development & Realty graciously provided our storage shed while the Village of Ravena supplied top soil. Former Town of Coeymans Supervisor Steve Flach provided compost to enrich the beds. In the past we've relied on the Ravena Fire Department for watering the garden. Thanks to all our great supporters!
The garden is named after long-time area resident, Linda Civill, who helped the less fortunate in our community in many ways. Linda volunteered at Helping Harvest, our food assistance program. She also loved to garden and we know she would be delighted to have this effort named in her memory.
