Community Garden

Often planted on public or formerly abandoned land and run by volunteers who cultivate food, flowers and closer relationships to nature and one another. Sometimes fenced and locked or threatened by development, but generally open to all participants, raising the quality of life in the community, and improving habitat, air and soil quality at the same time. Some gardens serve a specific need such as supplying produce for local Food Banks.
