Community garden

Habitat in the Community

Community gardens in our region serve many purposes; they connect neighbors, feed families, and provide education and resources to neighborhoods. Habitat partners with these organizations to help sustain these services within our communities. Please read below for how you can support Habitat and these key community gardens, and learn more about the Covid Protocols we have in place.
