According to Builder online magazine, ” A darling of both organic advocates and the local-food movement, community gardening is a trend that’s bound to grow. ” Community gardens are basically shared gardens that can fulfill many needs and wants of a community like “a desire for fresh food that’s affordable, for activities that help create a community, for a place that can bring people in a neighborhood together,” says Gayle Berens, a senior vice president at the Urban Land Institute.
These community gardens are also an effective use of vacant land. Another great reason community gardens are great for neighborhoods is that for those that want to break away from the costly and sometimes barely used amenities like golf courses, this could be a cost effective alternative that will add more green space to the neighborhood.
