This week, the Center’s Native Youth Listserv email provided information about how to Start a Community Garden!

The American Community Gardening Association’s (ACGA)
mission is to help community’s increase and enhance community gardening
and greening across the nation. ACGA provides resources and ideas about
how to start your own community garden with help from friends, neighbors, schools, and other local organizations. Follow these steps to help plan, organize, and create your own community garden:

Form a  Planning Committee

Choose a Site

Prepare and Develop the Site

Organize the Garden

Think about Insurance

Setting up a New Gardening Organization

How to Manage Your Community Garden



Every community is different, so these are just ideas to get you started! For more information about these steps download the ACGA’s “Fact Sheet,” and visit ACGA’s website for more resources and tools. 

We also encourage you to visit our one-stop shop resource center
for a comprehensive list of available resources (scholarships,
fellowships, summer programs, grant opportunities, etc.).
