What Are the Benefits of Community Gardens?

c gardens
Gardening is one strategy for improving much-needed access to fresh produce. But, many Fresno residents live in apartments or in home where they do not have space for gardening. Community gardens provide space by repurposing vacant land.

Have gardening questions or concerns

Contact our Master Gardener Helpline 

Monday to Friday 9:00 am to 12:00 pm 

Phone number: 559-241-7534 to talk with a Master Gardener 

Or e-mail us: Mgfresno@ucdavis.edu

Community Garden Resources

Life Labs Community garden help

To help advocates work with local governments to adopt these types of policies, NPLAN, a project of ChangeLab Solutions, developed this policy package that includes model language that can be incorporated into local land use guidelines. We also recommend that you look at our model policies, which can help advocates work with local governments to create and sustain these important neighborhood resources
