Community Gardens

There have been many changes in the economy that have caused many city areas to become less affluent. Some of the residential areas have given rise to a growing number of poor single parent families that are living amidst high rates of violence and drugs.

The opportunities for resources in these neighborhoods are limited, but many neighborhood residents are coming together to form coalitions to better their neighborhoods and their lives. Many neighborhood groups are forming community gardens in vacant lots.

These community gardens are a great way to get both children and adults involved in beautifying the neighborhood community while working with nature.
