Community Gardens

Enjoy the Bounty of the Earth

Since 1978, Eugene’s community gardens have been growing friendships, community involvement and an appreciation of the land. By giving participants the opportunity to cultivate their own gardens, the Community Gardens Program helps people experience a special connection to the earth and their community.
