Garden Plans > 2021: Museum Garden

About this Garden Plan

This is the planned 2021 Garden at the Batavia Depot Museum. It serves the community as an educational space built on an exploration of the history of food gardening and transition to the modern day suburban garden. It also functions as a space for building community through work days where volunteers weed, harvest and donate produce to the local food pantry. The garden is ever changing, just like our town.
