The New Vista Community was established to provide for the needs and well-being of intellectually challenged individuals. The garden is part of the program pairing veterans and challenged trainees to find new paths to employment, giving trainees new hope and a fuller life. The garden program teaches organic gardening and life skills “through rehabilitative job training and employment opportunities in the sustainability industry.” Trainees learn “on the job” about working cooperatively as a team member and individuality on tasks prepares them for the possibility of employment outside the Ranch itself in order to improve their quality of life and give them a sense of pride and accomplishment.

Established in 2013, the new Craig Ranch Regional Park stands on a former golf course, offering ample room for its community garden and other structures. The garden is open daily from 6:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. and plots can be leased from May through October. These 62 beds are 5’x13′ in size, with a cost of $150 for a full bed and $75 for a half bed. The waiver and agreement states that the gardener is responsible for the weeding, watering, upkeep, harvest and maintenance of their assigned planter-box, although you can have an assistant help them out if you are going to be away for any period of time. It’s the perfect place to grow your own vegetables to can, freeze or eat out-of-hand.
