Starting or joining a community or school garden is a great way to give back. A community garden can:
- help you connect with the community
- provide fresh food to those in need
- preserve green space in your neighborhood
- get you outdoors where can enjoy nature up close
AARP’s Create The Good, working with Hands on Network and the American Community Garden Association have developed a toolkit to help you start or join a community garden in your area.
Whether you start or join a garden, remember, the end results are worth the wait!
