Community Gardens

Community gardens are places that bring community members together to grow fresh fruit and vegetables.

They are a great way to learn about gardening and to connect with people over shared interests. Community Gardens can improve your health, wellbeing and contribute to environmental benefits.

You are welcome to visit or join the existing garden groups in the City of Logan.
