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.
