A community garden is a piece of land collectively gardened by a group of individuals that can take on varying shapes and sizes. Community gardens act as a location to bring people together and to build community. They encourage people to work together, communicate and create something beautiful.
Some benefits community gardens offer include:
- Fresh and affordable vegetables and fruits
- Physical activity
- Stress relief

- Community pride
- Positive spaces
