What is Sharing Backyards?
Sharing Backyards links people with unused yard space with those looking for a place to grow food.
Over the years, interest in community gardens has increased creating longer waiting lists of people anxious to garden. Starting the Sharing Backyards program became another way for us to create opportunities for urban people to grow food, connect with their neighbors, and strengthen our community.
