Community Garden Day

Community Garden Day is Saturday, September 17, 2016!

The Twin Cities are home to over 600 community gardens and urban agriculture projects. In the Twin Cities and across the country, community gardens transform lives and rejuvenate neighborhoods. More about Community Gardening in MN is available in the most recent Snapshot of Community Gardening in MN.

Community Garden Day recognizes the contributions of community gardeners to the health, vitality and livability of their communities, and also serves as an opportunity to spread awareness about the Multiple Benefits of Community Gardens to the public. 

We can't wait to celebrate with you this year! Check out our interactive map and full directory of participating gardens!
