Community gardens are vibrant shared spaces for growing fresh food, learning, and building friendships. Create or strengthen one in your neighborhood! In this interactive training, we will cover: locating community support and resources for your garden, accessing land and water, organizing a strong garden team, school-specific strategies and guidelines, garden management, and more. You’ll hear from a community garden leader about his/her experiences starting and sustaining his/her garden.

If you are interested in creating a school garden, this training is also for you. The content of this training is similar to that of the School Garden Leadership Training.
