Community Gardens

Support for Community Gardens

Community gardens share many of the same soil and water resource concerns as our urban farms. The District can develop a Soil Conservation and Water Quality Plan for your community garden and work with you to implement common soil health and water conservation practices such as crop rotation, cover crop, pollinator habitat, contour farming, mulching, soil testing, water harvesting and conservation solutions, and more!
