Community Gardens

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
  • New Skills
  • Community building
  • New friends and connections
  • Community pride
  • Positive spaces
