Welcome to Aptos Community Garden! The owl house on the fence of the Garden  is still looking for a mom and pop to settle in.  Great to see the new owl family at Moss Landing.  

Update:   Plots #40 and #32 are now  available in the Garden. Come take a look ….

There are three community gardens in the Aptos to Santa Cruz area.  Closest to Aptos Community Garden is the community garden located  near Cabrillo College on Soquel Ave at Temple Beth El.  The Temple Beth El garden  has some 4 by 8 foot boxes available for rent.

You can stop by and look around Aptos Community Garden. From Highway #1 take the Freedom Exit and go to the end of Soquel Avenue — just past the California Highway Patrol office. That’s where Aptos Community Garden is located.

Garden

Aptos Community Garden continues to thrive …

Garden plots that we know are currently available have a small “red flag” on them. Other plots may come available in the not too distant future.

Take a look around and you will find application forms and other information.

Know about  the game Pokemon Go? You use a ‘smart phone’ with GPS and  camera and play the  game wherein you ‘catch’ imaginary creatures. How to start?  Download the app and go for it.  The ‘rules’ are elusive.  It’s fun.

Aptos Community Garden is a beautiful spot to play Pokemon to your heart’s content. Catch those critters!  Aptos Community Garden is a “gym” requiring “Level 5 status”.

Take a look at current photos of the garden on Twitter. Go Twitter, put a # followed by aptoscommunitygarden
