Community gardens shift our thinking around food, community, and the environment — not only by beautifying spaces and enriching our diets, but also by strengthening our bonds with others for a healthier, more connected environment. We invite you to share photos and stories about your community garden, and tell us how it has been a transformational experience for the neighborhood and everyone involved.
