Community Gardens offer newbie gardeners the opportunity to learn how to grow food from experienced green thumbs. They beautify neighborhoods, and provide an abundant source of fresh, nutritious food, and grow relationships and social support networks. In “food deserts” with few options other than convenience stores, they are a lifeline to better health. Joining a community garden builds friendships and fitness. Sharing some of the garden’s harvest with food banks lifts our entire community by reducing hunger.
