This summer marks the tenth season of the Jeremiah Development garden at the corner of Court Street and Park Avenue. This thirty bed garden is available to all residents and neighbors to harvest healthy fruits and vegetables throughout the growing season.

Jeremiah Garden


In the middle of downtown Rockford there is a place of quiet and green. The garden at the corner of Court St. and Park St. is an offering of love from Jeremiah to the people who call the Coronado/Haskell neighborhood home. In an area where it’s hard to find fresh vegetables, Jeremiah’s garden has 27 raised beds filled with tomatoes, cucumbers, squashes, greens, rhubarb, and raspberries!

Everything grown in Jeremiah Garden is free to all.

If you would like to come play in the dirt and help feed hungry people, we are there most Saturday mornings at 9 am.
