Community Garden & Orchard

Community Garden

The Pendleton Heights Community Garden launched in Spring of 2013 and continues to grow every year!  This project is in partnership with PHNA, Kansas City Community Gardens, and MU Extension.  The garden occupies a long-vacant parcel at Brooklyn and Minnie in the heart of the neighborhood.  Plots in the garden are available for lease to residents for personal gardening or residents can work in community plots in exchange for a share of the harvest.

  • Working the Land – Community work times for garden plot owners and volunteers are Saturday mornings at 9 a.m. and Thursday evenings at 6 p.m., but anyone is welcome to work in the garden at their convenience.
  • Enjoying the Harvest – The neighborhood provides harvested produce to those who volunteer to care for the community plots as payment in kind for their labor.

All PH residents can enjoy produce from the garden.  Come by during during weekly work times, meet some neighbors, and take home some yummy vegetables! We just ask for a small donation in return.

Please DO NOT pick produce yourself. The garden includes a combination of private and public plots and the assigned harvesters know best what and when to pick. The harvesters work hard to provide fresh produce each week.

Community Orchard

In Summer of 2013 PHNA reached an agreement with Kansas City Parks & Recreation to plant an orchard on the vacant lot at Lexington and Montgall.  In addition to providing fresh fruit and nuts for the neighborhood, this orchard will also provide a history lesson – the selected tree varieties represent trees grown in Northeast Kansas City as far back as 1860 and each tree will include a plaque with its heritage.  Varieties will include peaches, apples, figs, pecans, pawpaws, serviceberries and more!

Upcoming Events

Charity Bingo at Hamburger Mary's
Tuesday, April 28th • 7:30 p.m.

Hosted by some of Kansas City’s most fabulous drag queens, this is not your typical church basement bingo. The show can get a little risqué. It’s all about having fun while supporting local KC charities. On this night, Pendleton Heights is the lucky charity!

Come out and support our neighborhood initiatives: a garden shed in the community garden, more trees for our historic orchard, and our security fund.
