Our farm and garden is located in the old baseball field previously part of the former Livingston School. Before the garden, this was a flat grassland, but we have transformed it into a bountiful community garden by creating raised garden beds using the hugelkultur method. Our hugelkultur beds use woody material from the Tivoli Lake Preserve and many layers of organic material, including our homemade compost, to create nutrient rich mounds. These beds are excellent for retaining moisture!
During the growing season, we host Garden Work Days where the community has a chance to get hands on gardening experience and learn about the food system. Volunteers love harvesting vegetables they've grown themselves.
We are dedicated to feeding our community. Tivoli Preserve Community Garden provides eggs and vegetables to community members on a suggested-donation basis. We also donate produce to the Sister Maureen Joyce Center, a food pantry located two blocks away from the farm.
