The Henderson Community Garden is Eureka’s longest running community garden. It was started in the 1980s by Food for People, and throughout its duration has been primarily utilized by Hmong families, many of whom are refugees. The garden is located behind the Eureka Mall on Henderson Street. RCAA partners with the City of Eureka, who owns the land, to manage the space as a community garden. The garden serves as an important cultural space for the Hmong families, allowing them to grow traditional foods and medicines. Many have brought seeds over from their native countries and some have created hybridized varieties suited to our North Coast climate. These traditional foods and medicines would otherwise not be available to local Hmong families.
