The Sharing Garden Program is made up of several gardens in Beloit’s Merrill Neighborhood:
Porter Avenue Sharing Garden
This is our biggest garden, located at 1322-1328 Porter Avenue. In this garden we focus on providing beauty and nutrition through herbs, vegetables, and fruits. This year we have a variety of tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, greens, herbs, melons, and berries!
Our pumpkin garden is located behind 1264 Porter. This is a seasonal garden just for pumpkins. Look for our pumpkins at a community event this fall!
We are now accepting donations of any and all perennial ground-cover and flowers! The goal for this garden is to act as a kind of neighborhood nursery, in which neighborhood residents can come and pick out their favorite plants and we’ll help transplant them into yards.
