Community Gardening in Minnesota: A Snapshot

Download the 2015 version by clicking here.Register your garden by taking the Garden Survey!We rely on garden coordinators to submit Community Garden Surveys to us in order to keep our records up to date. We use garden coordinator contact information to let gardeners know about important issues affecting the gardens, including funding opportunities. Garden coordinators can expect to hear from us several times a year, including the spring, when we refer prospective gardeners to plots available in gardens. We use aggregate data from our garden survey to advocate for supportive policy changes. We also do an annual analysis of our garden data to produce the "Snapshot of Community Gardens." This document has been essential in highlighting the benefits of community gardens to policy makers. If your garden has not submitted a survey in the last year, please fill out the online survey or print and mail in this paper survey! Your garden data matters! You may also call the office to walk through the survey over the phone (612-821-2358).
