What are community gardens?

Community gardens come in all sizes and shapes, and are filled with a glorious diversity of crops and gardeners both. Community gardens are the new village green, creating healthier communities by increasing community involvement and interaction between neighbors, providing fresh fruits and vegetables, and increasing opportunities for healthy outdoor physical activity. Community gardens save money, increase green space in urban areas, serve as unique hands-on educational centers, and much more. In their simple grassroots way, community gardens are making a growing contribution to the local food movement, to food security, and to food justice.
