Community Gardens

Across the country, the community gardening movement is growing strong. Here in Forsyth County, NC, community gardens have taken root in neighborhoods, civic groups, faith communities, public parks, schools, and more. These are places where people come together to grow food, create and preserve green spaces, and bring neighbors together, and they are as diverse as the people gardening in them.

Community Gardens

Forsyth Community Gardening supports the growing efforts of more than 160 community gardens across Forsyth County. By supporting residents in establishing and sustaining community gardens, we seek to improve access to fresh produce, enhance environmental quality, provide outdoor educational opportunities for all ages, and build positive relationships in our communities. Explore our website to learn more about Forsyth Community Gardening and discover how you can get involved!
