Welcome to Camarillo Community Gardens
Our goal is to empower our neighbors, to encourage them to take control of their own food supply, to enjoy a more healthful life style, educate youth about where food really comes from, build a sense of community among citizens, reduce their food costs, and help the environment.
The project is supported by Pleasant Valley Mutual Water Company, Pleasant Valley Recreation and Parks District, the City of Camarillo, civic and fraternal organizations, and local business owners.
After working toward our common goal Camarillo Community Gardens is proud to present our first public community garden.
