Community Garden Assistance
As a part of a national movement, many non-profits, schools, churches, and neighborhood organizations are considering community and cooperative gardening. Community gardens can provide sustainable ways to supplement food pantries, improve school lunch programs, increase neighborhood food security, create welcoming green spaces, and build relationships amongst neighbors.
Because of the generous support of the SWFL Community Foundation, ECHO is able to provide planning and consulting to local organizations interested in developing community gardens in Southwest Florida.
Rebecca Garofano is currently the Community Gardens intern at ECHO. She is available to provide informational resources to your project and support you as you grow. For information on how ECHO can potentially assist your organization with consulting on your project, please download the “Community Gardening Application for Assistance” or contact Marie Shelli at firstname.lastname@example.org.
