The Bounty Garden is happy to announce that we’ve had a growth spurt. Earlier this summer, we were fortunate to be able to add eight more vegetable beds to the Garden, bringing our total number of beds to 32!

With a full roster of volunteers, there was room to grow. The additional beds offer “The Hive,” the Garden’s management team, an opportunity to plant continuously without taking away spaces away from community volunteers.

There is now room for all!

With most generous donations from John Montgomery Landscape Architecture and The Danville–Alamo Gardening Club, the new beds received the same tender loving care as our original beds. They were again constructed using rough, chemical-free redwood and filled with the same organic soil that has been producing such plentiful harvests thus far.

And the best part is……as we grow, our bounty grows, too.

Last year, The Bounty Garden donated over 3000 pounds of fresh vegetables to The Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano Counties. Fingers crossed, we will easily top that this year with 32 hardworking beds:

The Bounty Garden is 100% non-profit and structured to run on a minimal budget. We cannot thank the Danville Alamo Gardening Club and John Montgomery Landscape Architecture enough for their generous donations that nurtured our growth spurt!
