Aside from beautifying the landscape, gardening has health benefits. It’s an easy way to release stress, benefits mental and physical health – and produces healthy food.

Community gardens have been sprouting all over Broward County. From school gardens to large and small pot gardens, people come together to grow and sell produce at the local level, thus bringing the community together. Local gardens support and feed many low-income families that otherwise could not afford fresh produce.
