Community Gardens

A community garden is a not-for-profit, community based enterprise producing food primarily for the consumption of the gardeners. Community gardens play a role in improving access to fresh locally grown food, as well as providing valuable recreational activity, social interaction and educational benefits for the local community. Community gardens make a valuable contribution in responding to the challenges of climate change as one means by which to reintegrate edible food plants into the urban landscape.
