      BLURB: Welcome to the Community Gardens of Santa Clarita. This project is a team effort by a Board made up of committed and dedicated gardeners. We welcome your visit to our site and hope that you will join us in our gardening hobby./// I want to do this, but it's a massive wait list... indicating that there is a growing desire for whole, fresh, chemical free, local food ... and community experience. Hmmmm... food for thought (literally).
