Community Gardens

Here in Forsyth County, NC, community gardens have taken root in neighborhoods, civic groups, faith communities, public parks, schools, and more. These are places where people come together to grow food, create and preserve green spaces, and bring neighbors together, and they are as diverse as the people gardening in them.
