The Livingston Food Resource Center (LFRC) started the Community Garden in the summer of 2010 to provide a gathering place where local people can grow fresh produce for themselves and their families. Through collaboration with other Livingston service agencies, garden space is made available to Counterpoint, L’Esprit, the Girl Scouts, families, and individuals so that they can enjoy the benefits of gardening. Plots are assigned in early April.
The LFRC has hosted seed planting parties to get the community more involved in the garden. These events have been free and open to the public. They provided the seeds, soil, and egg cartons to help everyone get started with their own plot, but they also encouraged the sharing of seeds to increase collaboration between community members. The LFRC also provided volunteers to answer any questions about the planting and growing process.
