Community Gardens 

Can't garden in your own yard because of too many deer?  Not enough sun?  Or maybe you do not have a yard because you live in an apartment of condo?  Or maybe you would like a chance to meet like-minded folks?  Or perhaps you represent a scout troop or service club that would like to raise food to donate to our local food pantries? 

The Greater Rochester Area is lucky to have TWO Community Gardens for residents to utilize - the City of Rochester Community Garden and the Wabash Park Community Garden in the City of Rochester Hills.
