About the farm
You have arrived at the website for Wattles Farm Community Garden – an organic community garden located in the heart of Hollywood, California. Since 1975, we have been serving local individuals who enjoy getting their hands dirty, growing their own food, and participating in a community of like-minded spirits.
The land on which our community garden is now located was once part of the grounds of an elegant forty-nine acre estate. “Jualita,” as it was then known, was the winter home of Gurdon Wattles, a businessman and banker from Omaha, Nebraska. Designated City of Los Angeles Cultural Monument No. 579 in 1993, the Wattles Mansion can be seen just beyond the north gate of our garden.
