Not able to garden on your own terra firma? A community garden is the place for you. Not only will you get your own garden plot, but you’ll meet other super nice and helpful gardeners. It's a great place to collectively get your hands dirty!

Many gardens have handicap accessible planting beds. Other gardens support local food banks or Plant a Row for the Hungry. Check to see if they offer assistance to develop community gardens in your area or garden programs for children.
