The Center for Landscape Design & Stewardship (CLDS) is a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose mission is to promote environmental and community sustainability through landscape-based education, demonstration, and public outreach.
The CLDS is currently led by President, Jo Robbins, and a committed group of volunteers who manage the garden and its programs. Its operations are supported primarily through plot rental fees and private donations. Think you would be a good fit? Get in touch for more information!
Founded in 2008 by Krista Schneider and a core group of like-minded community members, the CLDS partnered with the municipality to create the 1.5-acre Butler Township Community Garden in Freedom Park. Since 2009 it has grown to more than 90 garden rental plots, four demonstration gardens, a community orchard, a market garden, and friendly hives of honeybees.
