Growing together via The San Diego Union-Tribune

If you dream of gardening but live in an apartment or a high rise or simply don’t have the space, don’t give up. Look for a nearby community garden — a piece of land from several acres to less than an acre, divided into garden plots available to local residents. Community gardens are spaces where individuals and families of all ages, races, creeds and levels of experience grow together.

San Diego County is home to more than 80 community gardens from north to south, east to west, and no two gardens are the same. Some are on city property and managed by the local city. Many community gardens are on church property operated independently of the church. School sites are home to community gardens, as are regional parks. UC San Diegohosts nine thriving community gardens and one satellite garden. A community garden in downtown San Diego sits on property belonging to the Port of San Diego.
