Zenda Community Garden
Want fresh vegetables for your family? Don't have time or turf to run your own garden? Join the Zenda Community Garden! We provide the land, you help plant and tend, and then reap the harvest!
The Zenda Community Garden is located at TILT's Zenda Farm Preserve, just outside the town of Clayton. TILT and the Thousand Islands Young Leaders Organization (TIYLO) started the Zenda Community Garden in 2009 to help provide all community members with the opportunity to grow their own fresh vegetables. In early 2010, organizers applied for and received a grant from the Northern New York Community Foundation to expand the garden and allow more families to participate.
The garden offers over 8,000 square feet of planting space, access to experts, and the support of fellow gardeners. To date, all expenses have been covered by private donations. It is our goal to continue offering a complete gardening experience, free of charge, to those who want to join.
TIYLO has created a new Zenda Community Garden blog where all the latest news will be posted. Check it out by clicking here!
