Community gardens turn empty lots and open spaces into green areas for growing fresh produce and plants. Community gardens encourage understanding and awareness of the environment around us, while rewarding the gardeners with home grown fruits, vegetables and other crops. Most are comprised of manageable sized garden plots that are joint projects created by members of the community and cared for by individuals. As such they also encourage opportunities for social gatherings, beautification and education.


If you would like to become involved with community gardens please complete our short survey on the Community Gardens page telling us about your interest in community gardens and add yourself to the master gardener email list checking your interest in receiving community garden news and announcements.
