The corner garden on Magnolia and Colorado is open to the public. Only plotholders may access garden behind fences.

We are now accepting applications for our year three of our program. Our program runs from October 2021-October 2022. The application is for ONE raised bed in the private area of the garden. Applications are due 9/10/21 and notified of status by end of September. Renters agree to maintain and care for the plot, growing vegetables and flowers of their choosing. Download the application here and mail it or email it to us. If chosen, renters agree to community standards and orientation before use. All levels of gardening may apply. Only Monrovia residents and those enrolled in MUSD may apply. 


Our community compost bin is now open thanks to our community partner LA Compost

Collect vegetable, yard, and fruit scraps at home and bring them here to turn into compost.

Basic steps: 

1. Collect your veggie and fruit scraps as well as yard trimmings and coffee grounds. Take off all stickers, wires, and anything that is not natural. 

2. Weigh your scraps with the provided weight and record the weight so we know how much we are diverting from the landfill. 

3. Dump scraps in the ADD bin only. 

4. After depositing your scraps, add equal amounts of mulch from the provided grey bins as the amount of scraps you contributed.
