Why Start a Community Garden?
Those who are lucky enough to have sunny backyards or balconies can plant a garden whenever they have the time and energy. But what about those who do not have a place to garden? For these people, community gardens may be the answer. Many families without adequate space to garden at home would like to grow their own fresh fruits, vegetables, herbs, as well as flowers, while saving money on their food bills.
And for many, gardening is a relaxing way to exercise and enjoy being outdoors. There are also families who would like to grow traditional foods not available in the supermarket, while offering an opportunity to pass along cultural gardening practices to younger generations.
