Community Garden Directory

Welcome to the Community Garden Directory! This map is maintained by Gardening Matters with the help of volunteers, and the cooperation of community gardens from across the State of MN--Thank you! 

We depend on community gardeners to register their garden with us by filling out our Community Garden Survey (also available in Word) in order to keep this map up-to-date. If you are a coordinator or a community garden not listed on this map, or if your communtiy garden entry is out of date, please fill out the survey and/or contact us!  

Please Note: if you belong to a community garden, but you do not want to be listed on this map for whatever reason, please still fill out the Community Garden Survey! There is an option to "opt out" of being listed on this Directory for those of you who would like to keep your community garden's location private to the general public. For that reason, although this Community Garden Directory is very comprehensive, it is not a complete representation of all community gardens in Minnesota. 

Interested in joining a community garden near you? The best time to start thinking about getting a plot is in the winter. Most gardens have their sign-up in early spring and are full by late spring. Use the Directory to find gardens near you! Since community gardens are all run a little differently (Gardening Matters doesn't directly manage or run any community gardens--more about what we do here), we can't refer you to gardens that have not given us permission to share their private coordinator contact information and/or do not have public contact information already available on the web.

COMING SOON! An interactive community garden directory to help you find community gardens based on your address

Remember, if you don't see your community garden represented on these maps, please fill out our Community Garden Survey so we can include you in our database!

Each year in August, Gardening Matters organizes a statewide community garden open house called Community Garden Day. This year, Community Garden Day 2014 To Be Announced!
