Yes, Big Bear has a Community Garden, actually two of them. Our first location, “China Gardens”, is located at 42050 Fox Farm Road, Big Bear Lake. It boasts 46 individual raised beds, over 700 sq. feet of food pantry growing area and 7 fruit trees. Fox Farm street side shows off the DWP Xeriscape Demonstration Gardens.
In our 2014 growing season, we distributed over 660 pounds of produce to our local food banks. Our second location is “The Ranch Community Garden” on Lakewood in Erwin Lake. The old soccer field across the street from the Parks & Rec Ranch is a 5 acre site that is being built in stages. The Phase I Build began in Spring 2015.
If you would like to be a part of the community garden experience, we need you. Builders, Growers, Garden Stewards, Seed Planters, Harvesters, even Guest Speakers. If you have the time we have a place for you. Contact – 909-486-8736 bbvcgp.weebly.com Big Bear Valley Community Gardens Project PO Box 1081 Big Bear Lake, CA 92315-1081.
