Community gardening

Community gardening has a long history around the world, but in the last couple years it has a revival in urban areas. This type of gardening brings together people from various backgrounds and age to a local community. Creating a useful green surface close in their own neighborhood, participants become environmentally aware in other areas of their lives as well and will respect productive hard work of each other. Besides strengthening local community, community gardens provide fresh fruits and vegetables and spices to their owners.
