How to Use This Guide
This guide includes two parts:
- A downloadable Community Gardens guide that can be used independently, and includes additional resources
- An interactive website to develop your community’s own Community Gardens guide
Both of these guides are written as a series of how-to steps to aid in planning, implementing, and evaluating Community Gardens. These guides are designed for the CAB and partners to complete.
Download the example Community Gardens guide first, then use it to help you through the interactive website.
Examples are included throughout these guides, but feel free to revise the examples, or completely change them, to best fit your needs - you know your community best!
The Community Gardens guide contains four sections:
Section 1: Community Garden Visioning Worksheet
Section 2: Identify Leadership & Identify Location
Section 3: Preparing for the Community Garden
Section 4: Starting the Community Garden
