Bestor Community Garden

San Jose has 19 community gardens that are managed by volunteers . Plots range in size from 10 ft x10 ft to 20 ftx30 ft and are assigned to residents on a first come, first served basis. Gardeners grow everything organically, from vegetables and herbs to flowers and fruit. Please note, there is an application process and typically a waiting list for some of the gardens.  The Bestor Art Garden is one quarter of an acre in size.


Anyone age 18 or older who lives in the City of San Jose may participate in the Community Gardens Program. This is an organic garden.
