IRB Community Garden

The IRB Community Garden is a member-run garden located in the Indian Rocks Beach Nature Preserve, between 9th and 10th Avenues on Gulf Boulevard. It was created as an area for neighbors to plant, learn, socialize, and enjoy nature in a shared community space.

Gardeners use Earthboxes to sustainably grow vegetables, fruits, flowers, herbs, and plants year-round.

The IRB Community Garden is maintained by the gardeners and City. The boxes are automatically irrigated by the City. No toxic sprays are allowed in the garden, and organic gardening is encouraged.


Earthboxes can be purchased from the internet and or at a local home improvement store. Earthboxes remain in the garden and are the responsibility of the gardeners to maintain, harvest, and replant throughout the year. All gardeners are responsible for purchasing their on-going Earthbox supplies and any gardening tools.

GreenTown Kids (GTK)

An Indian Rocks Beach based 501c3 environmental nonprofit is the community garden coordinator. GTK holds several garden work days, events, and educational opportunities throughout the year for garden members, GTK members, and/or the community.

Seasoned and rookie gardeners, alike, are encouraged to try out Earthbox gardening in the community garden! IRB gardeners are welcoming to all and always excited to share their gardening tips, knowledge, and ideas with fellow gardeners.
