SECTION 1



GARDEN




A garden is a planned space, usually outdoors,
set aside for the display, cultivation, and
enjoyment of plants and other forms of nature.

The garden can incorporate both natural and
man-made materials. The most common form today
is known as a residential garden, but the term
garden has traditionally been a more general
one.

Zoos, which display wild animals in simulated
natural habitats, were formerly called
zoological gardens. Western gardens are almost
universally based on plants, with garden often
signifying a shortened form of botanical garden.

COMMUNITY
GARDENING




A community garden is a single piece of
land gardened collectively by a group
of people.

Community gardens provide fresh produce
and plants as well as:


satisfying labor,

neighborhood improvement,

sense of community and
connection to the environment.



They are publicly functioning in terms
of ownership, access, and management,
as well as typically owned in trust by
local governments or not for profit
associations.

A city’s community gardens can be as
diverse as its gardeners. Some grow
only flowers, others are nurtured
communally and their bounty shared,
some have individual plots for
personal use, while others have
raised beds for disabled gardeners.

Community gardens may help alleviate
one effect of climate change, which
is expected to cause a global decline
in agricultural output, making fresh
produce increasingly unaffordable.

Community gardens encourage an urban
community's food security, allowing
citizens to grow their own food or
for others to donate what they have
grown.

ELEMENTS




For all their diversity, however, most
community gardens share at least four
elements in common:

In many ways community gardens are
re-enforcing basic human instincts
that are slowly deteriorating due
to the convenience of modern life.



land (or a place
to grow something)

plantings

gardeners

some sort of organizing
arrangements.



Land for a community garden can be
publicly or privately held. One
strong tradition in American
community gardening in urban areas
is cleaning up abandoned vacant
lots and turning them into
productive gardens.

Alternatively, community gardens
can be seen as a health or
recreational amenity and included
in public parks, similar to ball
fields or playgrounds.

Historically, community gardens
have also served to provide food
during wartime or periods of
economic depression.

SECTION 4



COMMUNAL
GARDEN




A communal garden:
(often used in the plural as communal gardens)
is a normally formal garden for shared use by
a number of local residents, typically in an
urban setting. The term is especially used in
the United Kingdom.

The centre of many city squares and crescents
(e.g., especially in London) are maintained
as communal gardens.

Despite the name, and the fact that they
typically look like a small public park,
such gardens are normally privately by
jointly owned, with sharing of maintenance
costs.

Access may be restricted by locked gates,
with keys available for residents, or only
unlocked during daytime. They are often
surrounded by tall railings designed to
keep people out.
