Harold E. Smerdu Community Garden - Carlsbad, CA, USA

One of several community gardens located within Carlsbad.  Formerly known as Carlsbad Community Garden it was renamed in November 2006 to honor the late Harold E. Smerdu, a retired local gladioli grower and avid gardener.  After his retirement Mr. Smerdu maintained several plots at the community garden where he gardened full-time, five-and-a-half days a week.  He helped other gardeners with their plots and shared his harvest with the community.

The garden consists of 52 plots, 20' by 30', with an annual use fee of  $90/year.  Priority is given to Carlsbad residents and there is a lengthy waiting list.  The property is owned by the City of Carlsbad who provides water for irrigation. 

Located at 1250 Laguna Drive, just north of the Georgina Cole Library.
