About Community Gardens
According to the ACGA (American Community Gardening Association), a community garden is any piece of land gardened by a group of people. Community gardens come in many shapes and sizes. They can be located with another use—like a church, school, or community center—or on a lot all by themselves. They can grow everything from fruits and vegetables, to herbs and decorative flowers, and everything in between. In Topeka, they could even be maintained by just one person. One thing all these gardens have in common is bringing people together and promoting a fun, healthy, engaging, and interactive neighborhood asset.
