Introduction to Community Gardens
Creating a Community Garden!
A Community Garden is a plot of land used to grow flowers, herbs, fruits, and/or vegetables, and is managed by a cooperative group of people. Community gardens can increase the accessibility of local fresh fruit and vegetables, make use of spare or run-down land, and create meaningful projects. Creating and running a community garden is also a great way for a Pod to get involved with other community members -- everyone gets their hands dirty, spends time outside, promotes plant-based eating through the production of fresh and local produce, and makes a beautiful garden for the neighborhood to enjoy!
