Our Gardens

Community vegetable gardens…

A community garden is created by neighbors working together to build, a garden on vacant land. The garden can include vegetables, small fruits, flowers, shrubs and trees. These gardens may fill an entire city block or only a small corner of a lot. The number of gardeners in each garden varies as well.

Greening projects…

A greening project is created by neighbors working together to beautify their neighborhood with trees, shrubs or flowers in window boxes, tire urns, whiskey barrels or garden beds.  

Youth gardens…

A youth garden is any 

garden project involving youth, including community vegetable gardens, neighborhood greening projects, school gardens, etc.  Parents, teachers and/or community volunteers are needed to facilitate these garden projects.

Kitchen gardens…

A kitchen garden is created by women working together to help each other build small vegetable gardens outside their backdoors. Most of these gardeners are Latino women who are socially and/or geographically isolated in our community.

Gleaning gardens…

A gleaning garden is created by members of an organization working together to  create a garden for the purpose of  growing food to help feed the county’s hungry. Community Gardens of Chester County supports this county-wide effort by helping with garden design, horticultural information, and construction. Our program does not provide tools, fencing or construction materials for these gardens.
