There is joy in tending to living things, hands in the dirt, head in the sun.
Gardens can increase people's happiness and health. Creative expression is essential for personal growth and building meaningful relationships. Our community needs a place to celebrate the ethnic diversity of our neighborhoods and the artistic and gardening projects of Natomas residents.
We are the Natomas Garden & Arts Club, established in 2017 with a dream of creating a Natomas Garden & Arts Center. We are a small group of inspired & committed neighbors whose mission is to nurture and grow. Nurture and grow relationships, nurture and grow connections, and nurture and grow community through gardens and the arts.
So far the NGAC has helped Natomas by acting as a catalyst. We work with other groups to promote artistic endeavors throughout the community. The NGAC has created a pollinator garden in a neighborhood elementary school, we maintain a plot in the Ninos Community Garden, donating the harvest to local food banks. We host arts and crafts projects, have created a public mural, participate in and support Chalk It Up Sacramento! and other community programs and events.
HELP SACRAMENTO THRIVE
Our hands are in the dirt and our head is in the sun as we tend to our garden.
The NGAC garden is YOU! Our community of neighbors is the dream – soil where seeds of inspiration are sown. Here we grow together and share interests, building a strong support system for creativity and harvesting the joy of belonging.
Will you help us work toward that dream? Your support now will enable the NGAC to continue planning for and developing larger projects like building the Garden & Arts Center. By providing this anchor for local artists the Natomas G&A Center will expose more community members to local art and artists, while also providing these artists a platform to present and promote their creations.
CONNECT your neighborhood. NURTURE the garden. INSPIRE our community.
