Community Gardens add beauty to our parks and offer a community an opportunity to learn about and practice growing fresh, nutritionally rich produce. And, thriving community gardens are a great way to bring people together and create health,y strong communities.
These gardens can serve as an outdoor classroom where youth can learn valuable skills like math, communication, responsibility, and cooperation. Gardens also provide the opportunity for everyone to learn about the importance of community, stewardship, and environmental responsibility. And of course, growing your own vegetables encourages healthier eating and physical activity in individuals and families, and lowers grocery bills.
The Parks and Recreation Department currently supports several community gardens within our parks.
