Community Garden Network

The Community Garden Network program seeks to give all community gardens and garden organizing groups in the seven counties of Northeast Florida an equal opportunity to access funding opportunities, support systems, local resources, the media and the citizens of our area. Our goal is to create a cohesive community network of gardens which provides cooperative support opportunities amongst its members and the community at large.

Community Gardens

We provide each community garden with the following free services...
  • A listing in our Directory and on our Map of community gardens 
  • A secure contact form for each garden, allowing the public direct access to all gardens. Contacts can be sent to one or many garden representatives.
  • Inclusion into our Events and Classes calendar to allow self-promotion by gardens
  • Profile on our website in our news feed. If your garden does not have a website of its own, you may post information about events or your organization on our website as often as you like. You can post as often as you like even if you DO have a website of your own.  Use this site to drive traffic to your site.
  • All garden representatives (specify as many as you like for your garden) receive direct communication with matters pertinent to community gardens in our area such as funding opportunities, volunteer and employment opportunities, zoning and land use information and program updates.
