Growing food in a community garden plot is a very unique style of gardening with great benefits and some tough challenges that home gardeners don’t experience.
The benefits: meeting kind and generous people from all over the world who share a love of gardening and learning from each of them by watching what they grow and how they set up their gardens.
The challenges: the far distance from your house which often limits how frequently you can visit your garden, and the difficulty of managing your garden from afar.
If you’re not careful, these challenges can make community garden plots feel more like a burden than a joy.
But, don’t worry! A lot of the hardship can be avoided if you pick the right vegetables for growing in a community garden.
