Our Ever-Changing Space
In late 2010, SEEDS transitioned from renter to owner in the purchase of the Southside Garden and the building at 706 Gilbert Street. This opened up a world of new possibilities for SEEDS – for our programs and for our community.
The SEEDS building, constructed in 2014, holds a kitchen and a multipurpose room with communal tables where the young people share meals they make using food they grow in the garden.
Outdoors, there are 1.75 acres of land with a classroom pavilion, outdoor cooking spaces, a greenhouse, a chicken coop, bees, a pond, environmental education exhibits and multiple areas for growing edible plants and the plants that support edible plants.
The three-year redesign of the Southside Garden began in parallel with the renovated building. To learn more about that, click here.
