Carpinteria Community Garden

This project was unique as it is the first EEM project mitigating for loss of agriculture farm land by installing community gardens. It included the development of a 25,000 square foot Community Garden and park on a City owned lot, along a former railroad corridor, in the heart of Carpinteria. The project has both standard lower garden plots and ADA compliant raised plots, distanced so wheel chairs can fit in between. The city also installed bioswales, stormwater capture system, and solar panels.


This project was funded via the Environmental Enhancement and Mitigation Program.
