Community Garden

Junior League of Boca Raton Community Garden Update December 2019

The City of Boca Raton has approved the Brightline Train Station.  As you may know, the approved station location will be where our community garden is currently located.  We would like to thank the City of Boca Raton for their partnership that helped the Junior League of Boca Raton make the community garden a reality. 

When we entered into our agreement to start a community garden over a decade ago, the City made it clear that our current location could become a train station in the future. We are incredibly grateful to the City of Boca Raton, the Mayor, City Council and City staff for providing an outstanding alternative location for the garden. At this time, we are working with the City to get approval to move the garden to Meadows Park.
Thank you to all our garden community members for your enthusiasm and willingness to build upon our success in a new location.  We have a great wish list of items for the new garden.  We are excited about the possibility of a new, larger, more accessible garden and look forward to working in partnership with Brightline to make it happen.  They have committed to work with us and fund the new garden.  We are determining the timing and will share as the details are finalized.

Thank you again for all your support.
