Connecting people with their parks

Community Gardening

Community garden initiatives are opening up opportunities to grow what we eat as a community.

The Conservancy has launched an initiative allowing us to help our community grow their own food, offer classes focusing on urban horticulture, and develop an urban farm site focusing on all aspects of horticulture in an urban area.
