Benton Park West is fortunate to have several community gardens available to its residents.
Residents may request private beds within the gardens to grow the fruits, vegetables, or flowers of their choice. They may also partner with others for group sharing. The third Saturday of the month Spring through Fall are the official garden work days, but feel free to volunteer or relax in the garden any time!
