Community Gardens

What’s a community garden?

The beauty of a community garden is that it does not need to be defined! It is whatever the local group managing it wants and needs it to be.

Commonly they are areas where fresh food is grown, but can also be for beautiful botanicals, wildlife habitats, and outdoor havens. Essentially a community garden is an open space, suitable for growing plants, run and formally managed by the actual gardeners themselves.

Often these are reclaimed and transformed sites where people can come together to grow produce but also to improve their local environment and work to grow as a community, with all the social and health benefits that can bestow.
