Community Gardens


Community gardens can be divided into three main categories: allotment (where you can rent a plot to grow food), donation (where a collection of people grow food together with the intent to give it away to, say, a food pantry/bank), and educational or demonstration (at the most disengaged level such gardens are where people visit to get ideas, they also can serve as workshop settings, youth after school program space).

I am a huge advocate of community gardens because, at the end of the day, to really democratize urban agriculture & make inexpensive healthy food options widespread by way of food gardening, people need a place to grow, but perhaps, more importantly, they need a network of support, a community of fellow gardeners to learn from. Community gardens fill both needs at once.
