Troy Community Gardens
The community gardens are at the heart of Troy Gardens. The gardens provide an entry point for individuals and households to get involved in the whole project. Community gardeners use the land to grow their own food, which has a positive impact on their household food security. Community gardens provide recreational outdoor activity as well as a fun and friendly environment for people of all ages, incomes, and cultures to work the land together and share their gardening knowledge and ideas.
Community gardeners sign up for a plot each spring, paying a minimal fee to help defray the costs of site maintenance and management (plowing, mowing, plot layout, and provision of water, tools, and compost). Gardeners also assist in site maintenance and management through volunteer commitments.
Each fall the community gardeners organize a "Garden Day" event to showcase the community gardens and everything that is Troy Gardens.
Our community gardens program is made possible by a grant from the Evjue Foundation.
