Community Gardens – Much more than soil and seeds

Across King County, there are gardens on rooftops, behind buildings, and nestled in unused parking lots. These spaces draw people from their apartments, homes, and living spaces. People connect with the land—even in the most unlikely of places.

Community gardens are a public good. They provide greenspaces in concrete jungles. They help combat food insecurity by providing fresh produce to those with limited access. They offer a sense of community, from providing educational opportunities for kids to donations to food banks.
