Many Boiseans do not have the opportunity to have a garden at home. Boise Parks and Recreation collaborates with residents to develop community gardens on select city-owned properties. The city offers technical support, education and networking opportunities, and promotes community garden best practices.
Participating in a community garden offers positive social interaction, increased environmental awareness, and helps support local food production and food security.
