Children’s Mercy Hospital Garden

Northeast Corner of Oak Street and 22nd Street

Children’s Mercy Hospital began this garden in 2018 with the goal to grow food and provide growing and healthy eating education to patients, families, and the community.  The garden currently features six raised beds and two in-ground gardens growing mostly vegetables. Three cherry bushes are planted with plans to add fruit trees and berry bushes in the future.  Through grants and donations, the garden has water access, an irrigation system, surrounding concrete walkway, and a storage shed with plans for an adjoining pergola to be built.

Extension Master Gardeners provide gardening support to plant, maintain, and harvest the garden. They also provide educational information to garden volunteers and other interested parties through one-on-one consultation, small group discussion and formal workshops.
