Community Gardens

Have you ever seen a large garden around your neighborhood or city? It might be a community garden. Community gardens are exactly what the name says. They are for the community to keep and maintain a garden. A community garden helps keep people creating their own resources, helps them save money, and lets them engage with one another.

“Organize a local seed swap and watch as your community grows stronger, lusher, and more diverse”

It is more than a garden; it’s a meeting place to gather with like-minded people.

“A few hours on an organic farm can change a child’s life forever”

Being that a community gardens exist in neighborhoods, it’s very likely that children will be exposed to the idea. At a young age they can learn the benefits of gardening, collaborating with others and growing food for themselves and others.
