About the LMCHD Community Garden
The Los Medanos Community Healthcare District (LMCHD) developed its Community Garden in Pittsburg to help build a healthier community. Since 2010, the Garden has provided plots to both individuals and groups, including the WIC (Women, Infants, and Children) program through which groups of gardeners care for a plot. Several plots are dedicated to growing produce that is donated to local soup kitchens and food pantries.
Contra Costa Master Gardeners provided consultation and support during the original development phase. We now offer ongoing education to local gardeners, and partner with LMCHD to facilitate educational events that are open to the public.
