Ashland Community Garden

Enhancing the health of the community and the environment

Ashland Community Garden promotes healthy communities and is intended to provide food security for many low income persons. In an urban setting, community gardens are part of the open space network. The gardens and those who participate in community gardening contribute to the preservation of open space, provide access to it, and create sustainable uses of the space. Ashland Community Garden was created to strengthen community bonds, provide food, and create recreational and therapeutic opportunities for a community. It also promotes environmental awareness; provides community education; creates healthy communities and improves nutrition in the Ashland community as a whole.

Urban gardening is on the rise!

According to the USDA, around 15 percent of the world’s food is now grown in urban areas. City and suburban agriculture takes the form of backyard, roof-top and balcony gardening, community gardening in vacant lots and parks, roadside urban fringe agriculture and livestock grazing in open space.
