Welcome to Redden Gardens!

We are an allotment garden in Covington, Kentucky's Eastside Neighborhood, where individuals rent plots to grow vegetables for themselves and their families. There are also many things planted along the outside of the fence that anyone is allowed to pick. Please do not be shy. There are tomatoes, peppers, collard greens, chard, and kale, as well as a few berry plants. If you are unsure how to pick or what plants are edible, please ask someone you see in the garden if they might be able to help or contact us directly. As an organization, we also donate some of our produce to BeConcerned, a local food pantry, an initiative we hope to further develop.

As the Winter approaches, many of the vegetables along the fence have faded. We will be replanting in the Spring. At the current time, there are two healthy chard plants growing on the Scott Street fence!

In our first year, we have accomplished a lot, and we only hope to grow from there :)

Mission

To create a dedicated green haven for vegetable gardening and community knowledge sharing while also promoting and showcasing sustainable practices in action. We seek to be an example of how to garden in the urban core by providing resources, space, community and education to our diverse community while serving as a source of local fresh produce for the community. We aim to help people get their hands in the soil, seeds in the ground and vegetables in their stomach.

Vision

Our vision is to grow beauty alongside vegetables, people alongside community, and stories alongside knowledge.
