GARDENS IN SA
gardens are places where people can come together to grow food and
community. There are many benefits to community gardens, including
providing access to fresh food; connecting with people in the
neighbourhood; learning skills of gardening, shared decision making and
cooperation; and participating in a productive recreational activity
that improves the local environment.
