About the Gardens

The Heritage Park Gardens, a 1.5-acre community garden, began in 2011 through many generous community donations.  The community garden has been developed in conjunction with the Town of Gardnerville and is currently maintained by a volunteer committee with the vision to provide “a place to learn, grow, share and beautify, to cultivate and nurture our community.” Since its first debut, the garden has transformed from hay bale garden beds to the current 26 redwood-constructed beds that are rented each season for the community to grow their own small crops. A walking labyrinth, and large-scale chess and checker’s board, a recognition wall to honor the volunteers over the years that made an impact, and a children’s garden where future gardeners can learn about nature, panting, and growing.

Bed Rentals


Our volunteers have the opportunity to play in the dirt, grow flowers and vegetables, pull weeds, care for trees,  care for outdoor furniture, plan new projects to enhance the gardens, paint rocks & other garden goodies, participate in the events we host for the community, and to create a place where folks can gather and enjoy their community gardens.

If you are interested in volunteering in the Gardens, please email Donna Werner at donna54werner@gmail.com
