Community Gardens

Community gardens provide space to grow food that connect elders, farmers, and youth through hands-on learning. A community garden may be used as a location to host other Feast for the Future programs, such as the Edible School Garden Program, the Traditional Foodways Education Program, and Farmers Workshops. Community gardens allow elders and farmers to share their knowledge with younger generations and pass on agricultural traditions.

Other community growing spaces that your community may want to consider are Community Orchards and Community Greenhouses.
