Community Gardening Resources
A community garden is typically one piece of land, gardened collectively by a group of people. Increasingly, community gardeners are “urban-dwellers with limited access to their own land”. Community beautification and revitalization, food security, physical activity and improved nutrition are just some of the benefits of community gardens.
Starting A Community Garden
Organization and management are critical to successful community gardens. Whether you are starting a community garden with neighbors, a non-profit group, church or at work, successful gardens typically have a core group of at least ten individuals or families to help divide the many responsibilities a garden brings.
