...to establish a beautiful garden that fosters community connections among Sisters, Oregon area residents. The garden will serve as a gathering place for a mosaic of people, a venue for education, a farm-to-table resource for local food banks, and an opportunity to realize the benefits and pleasure derived from gardening
Our garden began on Adams Street in 2006 when an acre of land became available to a group of garden enthusiasts. The desire was to provide Sisters area residents of all income levels the opportunity to grow fresh produce, to enhance members' gardening skills, and make excess produce available to local food banks.
A historic wagon (from the Paint Your Wagon movie we're told) was acquired and sat at the back of the property as a tribute to our western heritage.
At the conclusion of the 2012 growing season, the Garden was relocated to a new site on donated land adjacent to the Sisters Eagle Airport. Grants from the Cultivating Local Food Program and the Sisters Garden Club helped with the purchase of materials for the perimeter fence, cedar 2 X 10s for raised beds, and an irrigation system.
The Garden has 49 raised beds, plus two elevated beds at wheelchair height. There are six shared plots for fruit, herbs and flowers.
We are located at 15860 Barclay Dr. just east of the Sisters Eagle Airport
