Community Gardens

The Carbondale community is home to over ten community gardens belonging to houses of worship, interfaith organizations, non-profits, and collections of neighbors who share the common values associated with community gardening. These community gardens provide space for members of our community to grow plants and/or produce for beautification, education, recreation, food security, and/or community distribution.
