Gardens grow vegetables and communities. The most important element in determining a location for a community garden is neighborhood support. The following criteria are used in determining appropriates sites for community gardens:

  • High density neighborhood/limited private yards
  • Visibility/safety
  • Water availability
  • Parking
  • Walkability
  • Implementation ease (grading, etc.)
  • Unserved by other gardens

Before a garden is considered, a public meeting is held to listen to concerns, support and suggestions. Gardens will be developed as budget allows.
