While there are lots of positives about community gardening, the one downside is that we've had problems with theft. We are actively working on solutions from many different angles, and welcome your input about this problem. What are those positives? Community gardening has several benefits which lead to a higher quality of life not only for the gardeners, but for the neighborhoods as well. Benefits include:
Gardeners become more self-sufficient and empowered by growing their own food;
Community gardening builds bonds of trust among diverse peoples who come together to raise food. Community gardening results in personal relationships, community development, beautification, environmental justice, crime prevention, and development of leadership and self-reliance for gardeners and for our neighborhoods as a whole;
Community gardens beautify neighborhoods and help slow traffic by creating visual stimulation that's unique and attracts attention.
