“There is a growing trend of people seeking to connect with nature and create more sustainable local food systems. A diverse variety of urban spaces are appearing across the globe. Inner city vacant plots and verges, community gardens and roof top gardens have appeared throughout urban and suburban environments. Unused spaces are being converted into productive habitats which also help with community building. Part of the urban agricultural revolution is the development and spread of community gardens which are popping up in cities, on university campuses and schools as well as at corporate offices and industrial estates.”
So what is a community garden? It’s typically a piece of land who come together to garden as a group. They can either be owned by individuals, not-for-profit organizations, local cities, etc. Community gardens are a great way to connect with your neighbors and bridge the gap between consumers and agriculture.
