About community gardens in Cuyahoga County

There are more than 250 community gardens in Cuyahoga County and more than 5,000 residents dedicated to their care. These gardens are important community assets, providing neighbors with space to grow nutritious produce and strengthen social ties. Our goal is to provide this network of gardeners with the information and support necessary to create and maintain thriving, healthy people and places.
