Project MANA's gardens are in Kings Beach and Truckee. These gardens serve as demonstration gardens showing the viability of high-altitude gardening, economic benefits of growing food, and encourage community involvement. Food harvested from the gardens is given to community members at Project MANA food distributions.
Breaking ground in 1997, the Project MANA Truckee Community Garden offers 800 square feet of raised beds, lined with hardware cloth and covered in mini hoop houses. The garden has a pergola and picnic area, and is open to visitors at all times. The garden is located in the Truckee Regional Park, between the playground and amphitheatre. Approximately 15 beds will communal beds to be tended by volunteers on a first come, first serve basis during Summer 2013. For information on bed usage policies and procedures, call us at 775-298-0008.
The Kings Beach Community Garden, located on Rainbow Avenue at Secline Street in Kings Beach, CA, has 200 square feet of raised beds. It was started in 1997, when our office was at the Little Bear Cottages in Kings Beach. It is surrounded by murals painted by Cruz Zamarron, a local artist.
