Q. I would like to start a community garden in my neighborhood(Point Breeze). What is the best process for doing so?


This is a commonly asked question, so we have the answer in our AskPHS knowledgebase. Please note: Garden Tenders classes begin *this week* so we suggest you look into the classes right away. See calendar listing for upcoming Garden Tenders classes

Check out the PHS Garden Tenders program.  Here you will find the information and the contacts you will need, as well as answers to your questions about funding and securing the property.    

The PHS McLean Library is an excellent information source on starting a community garden. The library staff puts together useful subject guides with great resources on this topic:
