Life begins the day you start a garden. – Chinese proverb
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 grow and nurture relationships, grow and nurture connections, and grow and nurture 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 and horticultural endeavors throughout the community. The NGAC has created a pollinator garden at Garden Valley Elementary School, we maintain a plot in the Ninos Community Garden, donating our harvest to local food banks. We also host arts and crafts projects, we have created a public mural, and we participate in and support the Sacramento Tree Foundation, Chalk It Up Sacramento! and other community programs.
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 – it is the 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 and implementing larger projects like building the Garden & Arts Center.
The Natomas G&A Center will expose more community members to local art and artists, while also providing local artists a platform to present and promote their creations. Here, we will also create programming to share gardening, health, and environmental workshops to share resources and skills to enhance quality of life for our community. Will you share this dream with us?
CONNECT your neighborhood. NURTURE the garden. INSPIRE our community.
