Six members of the Canyon Lake Community Gardeners Club on Saturday visited the Tequesquite Community Garden in Riverside where they spent more than two hours touring the garden and sampling goji berries, jujubes, elderberries, and other edibles.

Opened in 2013, Tequesquite Community Garden has more than 100 allotments located on a 1.12-acre portion of the City of Riverside’s Bonamino Park. The community garden features fruit and shade trees, native plants, and a children’s garden.

“The city helped with fencing, water, importing good dirt, adding mulch, and helping with bare rooted fruit trees,” Canyon Lake Community Gardeners Club member Chris Papavero said. “The rest was done with the local gardeners to grow a paradise for many to enjoy.”

The Canyon Lake Community Gardeners Club members are for a similar community garden to be built in Canyon Lake. Formed in February 2022, the Canyon Lake Community Gardeners Club was approved as a sanctioned POA club in May and was granted 501(c)3 status from the State of California in June.

The club meets monthly to learn about gardening techniques and to share information, harvests, and seeds. For more information about the Canyon Lake Community Gardeners Club, contact Kelly Lopez at 951-609-6723 or email [email protected]
