What is a Community Garden?

A community garden is a space set aside by a local government or park district for the purpose of food growing. The space is usually sub-divided into plots which can be rented by the public for a growing season.

Why inventory Community Gardens?

Community gardens are a crucial amenity of local food infrastructure. For landless DuPagers, the opportunity to rent space for food growing is invaluable. Community gardens make starting a garden easy and feasible, reducing barriers for first-time gardeners.
