This website is dedicated to disseminating information about the San Pedro Community Gardens, located in the city of San Pedro.
The San Pedro community gardens have a rich history dating back about 40-years ago. It was started approximately in 1978. It was first a city landfill and soil and dirty was placed over the landfill. I was told it started with one person gardening there, then more followed suit. Currently, there are about 267 community gardens. Gardeners represent all cities within the Los Angeles area.
Plots are given out based on a lottery based system. The current administrators to the San Pedro Community Gardens are the City of San Pedro. If you would like to apply for a plot, the official city contact is Nicole (no longer there) at the city.
This website has been set up to help create more transparency between all stakeholders involved. There are many problems with the garden, but we remain hopeful the city of San Pedro will get it organized so everybody can enjoy gardening here.
If you would have any questions, please email me.
