When our gardens thrive, our communities thrive.

Community gardens create stronger neighborhoods and promote healthy living. By leasing a plot, neighbors connect to their parks by growing food for their household and learning about urban agriculture. 

The Conservancy also tends community beds with volunteers in each garden to provide fresh produce to local partners with our Grow it Forward Program.
