If you have ever wanted to try your hand at gardening but simply do not have the space at your own home, community gardens may be the answer. Community gardens utilize empty lots and other spaces as areas for growing plants and fresh produce. They encourage everyone in the community to be aware of the environment and to enjoy the “fruits” of their labors through shared work and benefits.
Community gardens are comprised of small garden plots that are allotted to members or groups to care for and improve upon as they see fit. Sometimes a group will “adopt” a garden plot to grow flowers, while in other locations several families may pitch in to grow fresh vegetables to be shared by everyone.
How Can I Find A Community Garden Program?
San Diego has dozens of community garden programs available all around the county. The San Diego Community Garden Network provides educational information as well as networking services to help potential gardeners share their plots and plans with others. By visiting and joining the SDCGN, those who want to participate in community gardening will find kindred souls who can help them learn more about this fascinating hobby.
Can I Garden On My Own?
While community gardens are interesting projects, some San Diego residents simply want to garden on their own. Juniper Landscape Company can help residents who want to create their own garden space, even if they have limited yard area.
For some residents, container gardening make more sense than trying to lay out a garden plot in the ground. Container gardening is an easy way to start and care for a small number of plants. Containers can be very small, such as a row of pots on a porch, or large, such as sunken tubs built into a deck or other area to hold larger plants.

With the help of this professional landscaping service, many San Diego residents, even those in the city center, have been able to create very versatile and useful gardens in very small spaces.
