Past Parades

The Parade of Community Gardens is now "Community Garden Day"--the name has changed but the concept hasn't! On this page you'll find archived examples of previous years' press releases, Community Garden Day resolutions, brochures, as well as participating garden descriptions, video, and links to photos. Plan on attending a Community Garden Day 2011 celebration and take yourself on a tour of community gardens where you live. Meet the people that create and maintain these spaces, and celebrate the role that community gardens play in beautifying and foodifying your neighborhood!
