In June 2015, following months of staff review, and recommendation by the Parks and Recreation Commission, the Mountain View City Council approved the .8 acre City owned property on the corner of Shoreline Blvd and Latham Street as the location for a plot-based community garden. Eighty four (84) plots, 6ft wide by 18ft long, have been created on this site. This includes limited amounts of ADA plots, short-term plots, and reduced rate plots for low-income families. Latham Community Garden opened in August 2019.
All plots are currently filled. To be added to the waitlist, send an email with your full name, mailing address and phone number to firstname.lastname@example.org.

The Demonstration Garden at Heritage Park, located at 771 North Rengstorff Avenue, is a true Community Garden that is operated by Soil&Water, a non-profit volunteer-led organization. Unlike other plot-based gardens in Mountain View, the garden at Heritage Park is a shared urban garden. Soil&Water, along with volunteers and the community, create the space and share its harvest. Community events and learning opportunities will take place through out the year led by Soil&Water.
Every Wednesday, 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m., and Every Saturday, 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.
