Romero Community Garden

Dr. Yolanda Romero Community Garden

Mission: To feed educate and involve the community to promote sustainable living. It is a gathering place where a group of diverse people can unite together to help serve our community through gardening.

More than 500 volunteers have helped grow the garden since it started in 2009.  Volunteers include students, faculty, staff and community members.  Fresh, healthy food grown is first provided to volunteers and surplus is donated to the Blazer Student Store on campus where all students can access.


The garden is funded by many people and organizations, including members of the Romero Family, Keep Irving Beautiful, North Lake College, and community members both near and far.
