THE P-PATCH PROJECT
Community gardens are more than places where individuals rent a piece of ground to enjoy the many pleasures of gardening; they are resources for the entire community. They are living places nurtured and cared for by all the gardeners who are members. They are a well-loved part of a neighborhood and play important roles providing open space, recreation, constructive use of vacant land, a visible connection to the environment, a tool for education and much more. Community gardening is truly a part of the city's eco-system and connects each gardener to the earth and the human community.
