Community gardens throughout the United States provide children and adults the space and opportunity to grow their own foods. These gardens cultivate lifelong lessons about the origins of what we consume but can also foster the desire for healthy, fresh eating. Americans overwhelmingly agree that children having access to gardens, especially community gardens, is valuable. Park and recreation agencies are leaders in bringing gardening opportunities to their community. For many Americans, these garden plots are the only chance they have for growing their own fruits and vegetables.
