FRESH FROM YOUR

OWN 'FARM'

WHY COMMUNITIES

GARDEN TOGETHER:

Gardening as a community has long been an enjoyable and productive way for neighbors to connect with others who enjoy producing their own food and growing extra for those who need help.

 

If you don’t have a suitable location, adequate soils or all the time needed to attend to your plot, or you simply enjoy the company of others while digging in the dirt, consider joining or forming a community garden.

  • access to a sunny, suitable plot.

 

  • knowledge and confidence in skills needed.

 

  • enjoy getting more involved with neighbors or other community members.
