Community Gardens

Across the country, the community garden movement is growing strong. These days community gardens can be found almost anywhere: public parks, religious centers, schools, backyards, and even rooftops. They are spaces where individuals come together to grow food, build relationships, and celebrate their communities, and they are as diverse as the people gardening in them.
