Community gardens help people eat well and feed people who are hungry. When people grow their own food, they are getting healthy food that they can afford. Gardens help people learn about nutrition and other issues related to food security.
Community gardens are also spaces where people work together. They give new life to areas that have not been cared for, and are a good way for residents to stay active while engaging with others in the community.
We encourage the growth of community gardens in our communities by providing information and resources to residents. There are more than 100 community gardens across the city.
