Everything You Need To Know About Joining A Community Garden


Community gardens are great ways to enhance communities, meet your neighbors, get your hands dirty, and even to feed yourself and your family without taking on a backyard garden all by yourself. Whether you’re in the suburbs, city, or country, community gardens are popping up everywhere, including vacant lots, rooftops, and public parks.
