Community gardens are just one of the examples of the kinds of projects spearheaded by neighborhood residents. The New Haven Land Trust has been a great resource in providing land, technical assistance and supplies for nearly 50 community vegetable gardens in the area. 

 

Here’s a map of all of the existing community gardens in New Haven! You can apply to start a garden or find out who to contact to join an existing one!

 

They also do work with land conservation and environmental education.
