Community gardens

Community gardens are places where people come together to grow food and learn the skills of fruit and vegetable growing.

Community gardens are natural living, sensory environments. They encourage people to be physically active and they offer a place for people to put down roots. Not only do they connect people with plants, food and culture, most importantly they connect people with other people.

 

Thinking of starting a community garden?

Creating a community garden can be a long process and requires a group of committed, motivated and organised people.
