Share a plot and enjoy delicious produce
If you are a keen gardener but would like to make this a social activity or perhaps you don't know much about gardening and would like some tips in a relaxed and casual atmosphere, you may want to join a community garden in your neighbourhood.
Community gardens are a lot more than a patch of land where plants grow; they bring people together, provide a learning platform for those wanting to expand their green knowledge and even give the community edible produce to reduce their costs of living and enhance their health! It is not coincidence these gardens are sprouting all over the world as people seek more active lives and healthy foods.
