Sven Hoyt Community Garden

Located on 32nd St. in Happy Valley neighborhood, nearly 100 garden plots on a gently rolling hillside form the Sven Hoyt Community Garden (formerly known as the Happy Valley Community Garden).  The largest City Community Garden is an active gardening community where you will find a variety of things growing including flowers, herbs, a variety of produce and hops.

New Gravel!

HVNA recently thanked our Bellingham Parks Department for responding to requests to add fresh gravel to the road and parking area for 32nd Street’s Sven Hoyt Community Garden. 

There had been some property line assessments to finalize before work could begin, but the Hoyt family has extended the public use of this valued community asset for at least another decade as of 2022 agreements with the City.

The HVNA Board and our Trees and Trails Committee are also lobbying to get trees — preferably in the form of a small food forest — and a dedicated trail added to the Parks and Public Works Department parcels that connect from the Hoyt Garden into the Connelly Creek Natural Area.
