Build a Community Garden

Bring your community together and enjoy getting your hands in the dirt while learning about the food to table movement by constructing a community garden. This is an activity that people of all ages can enjoy. Get started by pulling together neighbors, friends and everyone else who lives in your area. Regardless of whether you live in an urban or rural area it's possible to find patches of land or build your own raised beds where the community can plant their favorite vegetables of choice.
To get started, you'll want to read up on the timing for when and what to plant, how to care for it and decide on how to divide up the work between all the people involved. Some of the first things to do are: engage your community, identify local resources that help fund or offer tools, materials, and other assistance, choose your garden site, understand what makes a garden site safe and healthy, design your garden and get started growing!
