Finding a Community Garden
While we hope another organization will help connect people with gardens there is none at this time. In lieu of this, there are some options
Contact your neighborhood organization or City Councilmember to let them know you are interested in a joining a community garden
Inquire in the area that you would like to garden -- ideally the closer the better. You'll want to make it as easy as possible to visit daily or every other day.
Ask via COMGAR -- the community garden listserve -- instructions on webpage.
We'll announce any new opportunities to join a garden here and via COMGAR.

Coordinated by Karl Hakanson, UMN Extension Educator and started in 2019.
