Community Gardening

people planting a community garden plot

Community gardens are about more than just growing food. By increasing the number of local community gardeners and available garden space, families and individuals are able to grow fresh, healthy produce for very little money, green previously underused areas, donate to local food security programs, get to know and interact with their neighbours, and work together to enhance the communities they live in.
