Location Notes

The Floral Ave Community Gardens is located on Floral Ave, about 1/2 mile from Rt. 79. Since there is limited to no parking at the garden, it is best to park on Floral Ave closer to Rt. 79 and walk on the bike path along the inlet until you come to the garden.

For the class at the Ithaca Community Gardens, the compost demonstration site is on the 'railroad side' of the the gardens, outside the fence. Click on the link above for a map.

A link to a map to the Ithaca Children's Garden is above. Look for the Master Composter banner and signs to the class.

The Freeville Community Garden is located in the front of the Groton Ave Park. A link to the park is above.
