Phil Keener designed and built our coop and it is affectionately known as Phil’s Cadillac Coop. We have 6 hens, 3 bantam and 3 standard, all different breeds. All of our hens were supplied by Full Circle Farm. We have 9 “Chicken Tenders” (Phil’s term) who take care of our hens and coop on a rotating basis. Come visit with our “Tenders” and cluck to our hens.
Charles Street Gardens is an organic community garden located in the heart of Sunnyvale–it is located at 433 Charles Street and it’s open to all Sunnyvale residents. Whether you want to till your own plot, help in the group garden, or learn new garden skills and approaches, we’d love to have you join our team of volunteers [see our Volunteer Page].
We currently have a waiting list for individual garden plots, but please fill out the form here and we’ll add you to the list of eager gardeners. And if you’d like to dig in right away, you can join our group garden; just mention your group garden interest in the “how did you hear about us” field.
In addition to the 92 individual garden plots, our Food Forest Project grows food for hungry families, and the Master Gardeners’ demonstration garden shows examples of a wide variety of things that work well in Sunnyvale gardens. Come on by to see what’s growing.
We’ve had trouble with vandalism in the past, so unfortunately we have to keep the garden gates locked unless there’s someone in the garden.
We hold special community events throughout the year, and we are normally open to the public two days a week (weather permitting):
