Cornucopia Community Garden

Cornucopia Garden Masthead
The Cornucopia Community Garden, located on Telephone Rd. between Johnson Dr. & Ramelli Ave, is the City of Ventura's largest community garden with approximately 152 plots available for growing healthy, organic vegetables and flowers. Managed by staff from the City of Ventura Parks, Recreation, and Community Partnerships Department, the garden attracts community members from all walks of life who come together to cultivate the land and celebrate their harvest.

Rental Fees

Garden plots are rented and assigned on a first-come, first-serve basis. Plots average approximately 18ft x 20ft.

Current rental fees are $85.00 per plot for 6 months, due on January 1 and July 1. A $85.00 refundable garden deposit is also required. Garden plot fees will be prorated for renters joining the garden between billing cycles.
A 10% surcharge will be added to plot rental fees for customers who live outside Ventura city limits. This surcharge helps defray the costs for upkeep of City parks and facilities that are supported by Ventura taxpayers.
Rental fees include:
  • Water
  • Mulch
  • Green waste and trash disposal
  • Garden tools/equipment
  • Portable restrooms


Interested gardeners are asked to leave a message at 805-658-4754. A garden manager will contact you to schedule an onsite orientation at the garden.
