Why Community Gardens?

Community Garden
Although modern American culture tends to praise and value individuality, the reality is people can accomplish more as a collaborative group by capitalizing off of individual characteristics and unique strengths found collectively that progress a unified vision.

Community gardens have been around as long as society and both tangibly and metaphorically remind us of this truth.

In fact,  domestic agriculture like community gardening is what created communities!

People were motivated to gather a workforce around  mutual interests; planting, growing, protecting and harvesting food; our life force. And to stay put for a few seasons to see it develop.

Through a community garden experience we are reminded of this connect. Just as it does now, survival back then required collaboration.
