“Building life-giving relationships by turning an empty lot in Downtown Long Beach into a place that reflects God’s creative and unique love for us.”
Welcome to 5th Street Garden: A place for members of the community to experience meaningful relationships with their neighbors and peers. This once empty lot is now a symbol of the hopes and values of the community as they join together to restore and beautify. They have joined together to plant a variety of offerings where the fruits of its harvest are given back to the community. Join them on Sundays from 1:00-4:00 p.m.
5th Street Garden is a safe haven for the children in the community.
