Community gardens are spaces where local residents can grow food, relax, learn new things and make new friends. They also raise awareness of waste management, water conservation practices, local biodiversity, energy efficiency and nutritional health.
Our gardens offer the unique opportunity for residents to grow their own fruit and vegetables and enjoy the benefits of harvesting in a city environment.
