The San Luis Obispo Community Gardens offer space for residents to grow food at a low-cost yearly lease. Among the five Community Gardens in the city, there are over 100 plots available to purchase. These plots can vary from in-ground garden beds, off-ground raised garden beds, and ADA accessible garden beds. The goal with this project is to provide the Community Gardens with infrastructure to allow for a better garden experience and to increase the volume at which San Luis Obispo residents can utilize the gardens. Through communication with the San Luis Obispo Community Gardens, we were able to determine the most necessary improvements for the community gardens: Six Wood ADA Accessible Raised Garden Beds and one Wood 3-Bin Compost System. The garden beds are 2’x4’ and 3’ tall. The compost bin is 3’x9’ and 3’ tall and separated into three 3’x3’x3’ compartments. These garden beds and compost bins will be placed at the Meadow Park Community Garden. This project was lead by the author and assisted by members of the Cal Poly Construction Management department. This project was funded by JB Pacific.
