Community gardens are places where people come together to grow fresh food, to learn, relax and make new friends.
Community gardeners know that sharing land to grow food and other plants builds a sense of place and community.
The benefits of community gardening include:
• easy access to fresh, nutritious food
• a sense of achievement that comes through growing some of your own food needs
• making friends with people in the neighbourhood
• learning the skills of gardening, shared decision making and cooperation, all of which are necessary to successful community gardens
• healthy outdoor exercise
• increase community pride
• improving the local environment
