Neighborhood Garden


The Community Wellness Garden is located on the corner of 11th and F Streets in Arcata.  The church purchased the Packer's House in 1976 with a portion of the lot undeveloped.  In the spring of 1986, the church partnered with Arcata Food Endeavor (AFE), and a neighborhood garden was established.


After the AFE adjusted their food procurement approach, the church leased the garden to AmeriCorps for three years. In recent years, individual garden plots were leased to community members under the Deacons' leadership.


Beginning in 2012-13, the Arcata Presbyterian Church began a partnership with Humboldt Open Door Clinic and Cal-Fresh to start a Wellness Garden; a place where patients can learn about growing their own organic vegetables, have access to free vegetables and interact with other community members and patients. This community project will increase top-quality food availability for low income families.
