Community gardens are growing in popularity right now and for good reasons. They provide a wonderful setting for residents of both large and small communities to interact, learn to appreciate nature, and grow some of the best vegetables imaginable. Although it may seem difficult and require some effort, having a community garden gives people a sense of pride and enjoyment that makes it all worth it. Do you want to join the fun? This is the right way.
Step 1: Pause, and Consider for a Moment
Although a community garden sounds like a lot of fun, it’s important to understand that it won’t happen overnight. It will require the effort and dedication of many people, and being able to sell your idea and vision is crucial. Consider for a moment whether your neighborhood needs a garden like this. Will it be a vegetable, fruit, flower, or purely educational garden? Who will benefit from this garden (teenagers, children, or the elderly)? Although it may not seem like much, it is the most important step.
