    Always a mess around their property. I wish you would keep the block around your property cleaned up it would really keep the neighborhood looking semi nice. We used to love walking around with our daughter now its just trash, needles and people camping.

    I didnt even get to experience this because staff decided to close early every time I go. If the hours say Fridays are open 11-5 then why at 3 pm was it closed

    This is an educational non-profit, so Im happy to support. They have a good selection of plants that sometimes look a little rough. Mostly old standards, with a few surprises. Some basic gardening supplies. Organic Mechanics cactus soil! That makes it worth the trip. They could do better with natives for sale. Was surprised to not see any native fruit trees growing or for sale. People are super friendly and cool. Edit: last time I was there, the pricing was ridiculous. Some prices had been drastically increased and were more expensive than regular retail centers. This was troubling, since the mission is about sustainability and equitable access to urban gardening. The selection was bad. Plants in poor shape. There were too few staff, and they made everyone wait 15min to open. When I asked why everything was so expensive (several items were not priced, and when rung up, it was ridiculously expensive, so put most of it back), I got an earful about the poor decision of the board and ED, low pay, etc. The staff agreed on the pricing and said they told leadership not to raise it. They were obviously frustrated with the situation. Within a couple weeks, their troubles hit the news and they shut down. Sad. Boards and EDs can be both helpful and harmful, especially when they forget their mission and do not provide effective leadership or oversight. Google says they are only open on Saturdays for a few hours at one location. They need to update their website, which hasn't been updated since shutting down, and be transparent about what's happening, so those of us hoping you make it know what is going on AND DONT WASTE OUR TIME. Get in front of it! Your website has too little information.
