The Virginia Community Garden Network is a new platform to engage and share info, resources, news, and events related to community gardens across the commonwealth. The budding network is building an interactive listserv, shared resources folder, and a statewide community gardening mapping component.
We seek your participation in this network as we create new content and resources for all of us working in community gardens across Virginia.
