Description
Springfield Community Gardens has multiple gardens throughout the community and especially in Council Zone 1. These gardens serve as a key connector for neighborhoods, families and individuals around food. They provide the opportunity to grow food, learn from others and build friendships. The Food Access Team is tasked with helping coordinate activities of current Zone 1 gardens. If a community garden is not already in the neighborhood, neighbors will help find a location for a garden. Consolidating several action items within the Zone 1 Blitz “wish lists”, the goal of this project is to analyze needs of all community gardens referenced in Zone Blitz discussions, identify resources needed and coordinate obtaining those resources.
