Are community gardens worth it?
Community gardens can mitigate some of the problems that plague urban areas. They can be a beneficial addition to many communities by increasing the availability of nutritious foods, strengthening community ties, reducing environmental hazards, reducing food miles and creating a more sustainable system.
Can you make money from a community garden?
How much profit can a community garden make? If a community garden is smart about maintaining memberships and selling produce, it can make as much as $50,000 per year in revenue.
What is wrong with community gardens?
Whether it’s your plants, tools, or cash that goes missing, theft is at least an occasional fact of life for most all community gardens. Sadly, vandalism in the form of property destruction or defacement also occurs. While non-members are the most obvious culprits, intra-garden shenanigans are known to occur, too!
