Bayer Farm Community
Food Garden Specialists Join the Bayer Farm Community
Bayer Farm Park and Gardens is located in the culturally-rich Roseland neighborhood at 1550 West Avenue—just one mile from downtown Santa Rosa. Bayer Farm Garden was created and, for many years, maintained by LandPaths. LandPaths with the Santa Rosa Parks and Recreation is expanding Bayer Farm as a 6-acre farm and city park-in-the-making. The public is invited to lend a hand in the garden during “community volunteer hours” (beginning June 6, Monday through Friday, 1-5:00 pm). Community workdays are every third Saturday of the month, 9:00 am-12:00 pm followed by a potluck lunch. Children are welcome to volunteer or to play in the natural play areas. Visit LandPath’s site to see how you and/or your business can support and donate to the garden. Construction of the park and garden are on-going. You can read about the existing park and garden and view the master plan on the City of Santa Rosa’s site. And, stay up-to-date on Bayer Farm Garden happenings on Bayer Farm’s and SCMG’s Facebook pages.
