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.
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!
