Community Garden Tour - August 5 - 11, 2018
Alliance Area Community Gardens
The Greater Alliance Community Gardens Association helps support 9 community gardens where people can grow vegetables, herbs, fruit, and flowers for personal use. The gardens range in size, style, and function. Some of the gardens offer individual plots while others have shared plots. Some of the gardens supply fresh food for meal kitchens and the local food pantry. Some of the gardens are educational and involve children and mentor at-risk youth. Each garden is operated and maintained by committed volunteers. Some gardens also offer programming. They are all places that beautify neighborhoods, inspire community development, foster good-neighbor relationships and community pride.
