Community Gardens

Community Gardens provide space and support for neighborhood residents to grow food to feed their families. Currently, the YNDC supports five community gardens - four in the Idora neighborhood (on Parkview, Sherwood, Brentwood, and Mineral Springs Ave.) and one in the Lincoln Park neighborhood (at the intersection of Rigby St. and S. Jackson Ave.). The gardens are open to the public, and garden plots can be reserved through the YNDC.

The YNDC provides plants, seeds, tools, and water for community gardeners, as well as educational programming during summer months. The gardens will be officially open for the 2012 season beginning in Mid-April.

For more information on the community gardens or to reserve a garden plot, please email Liberty Merrill at or by calling the YNDC office at 330.480.0423.
