Hot Off the Press – Community Food Gardening Handbook

Collard Greens and Common Ground: A North Carolina Community Food Gardening Handbook Now Available

Across North Carolina, community gardens are making a positive difference by strengthening neighborhoods, increasing food security, and giving thousands of people a place to grow a food garden of their own.

Behind every successful community garden are people just like you. We dedicate this publication to you and your fellow community gardeners, and to the sponsors, supporters, public agencies, faith communities, and other organizations that help turn community garden dreams into green and growing realities.

Many excellent documents and websites already explain the benefits of community gardening. The writers of this guide, both experienced community gardeners, highly recommend exploring them.

Authors Don Boekelheide and Lucy Bradley hope to address a different objective, however, by emphasizing practical information you can use to help make your community garden a success, whether you are a beginner starting your first garden or a veteran community gardener looking for ways to make your garden even better.
