Greenwich Community Gardens creates organic community gardening opportunities and supports a sustainable food culture. We promote community building, garden education, environmental health, and wellness.
We provide an opportunity for Greenwich residents to create sustainable gardens, promote garden education, build community, and demonstrate diversity. Committed to organic growing practices, we advocate for the health and wellness of our community and planet.
Founded in 2009, Greenwich Community Gardens is a 501c3 non-profit organization. Our gardens offer more than 230 raised beds, garden tools, on-site composting, rainwater harvesting and gardening classes throughout the year. Our “Neighborly Harvest” program grows hundreds of pounds of fresh produce annually for the Neighbor to Neighbor food pantry in Greenwich.
We are passionate about our mission and we believe that everyone in our community has a right to good food and good health. We know from our experiences that community gardens help to create happier, healthier and more cohesive communities.
