Toolkits & Planning Guides

Thinking about starting a community garden? You don’t have to start from scratch! There are amazing resources to help guide you through the planning process — from organizing a garden team, setting up a budget, deciding on garden rules, and considering potential challenges.

Land for Community Gardens

Finding a space to start a community garden can feel like a challenge, but there are many options. These resources detail how to select a site, where to look for available land, what to discuss with the landowner, and options for purchasing land.

Community Garden Design

Designing a community garden often means working with a group to plan a space that is ideal for people and plants. These resources offer guidance on key questions to ask, considerations for universal design and accessibility, and ways to incorporate permaculture design into your community garden.
