Community Gardens

WaterUps® Public Spaces

 

Community gardens are our space. 

Community gardens offer many benefits, from providing a place for those who otherwise would not have space or opportunity to grow food to helping city people reconnect with nature. 

Gardening in communities also encourages fitness, sharing of healthy seasonal fresh vegetables and fruit, increased social interaction and sense of community belonging, and increased gardening knowledge and expertise. Community gardens can also contribute to urban improvement by greening otherwise vacant lots, diversifying the use of open space, and increasing plant diversity which can expand the habitat for urban wildlife.
