|The Winston Smoyer Memorial Community Garden boasts nearly 100 individual garden
sites that are tended by individual gardeners, who enjoy planting fresh flowers and
garden vegetables. They also enjoy getting together once a month for informative
monthly meetings and workshops on gardening.
The Garden is named after Winston Smoyer, a retired Alhambra High School teacher,
who was one of the most ardent Alhambra Community gardeners in its history. He loved
his garden space, and provided friends with a never-ending supply of fresh vegetables, including some of the largest zucchini known to Alhambra. He was also a community
activist, serving as long-time President and Curator of the Alhambra Historical Society, member of the Board of the Alhambra Day Nursery, member of the Alhambra Chamber
of Commerce (where he won the Chamber's prestigious "Citizen of the Year" award),
and other community organizations.
