How to Unlock a Neighborhood’s Creative Potential

Community gardens catalyze outdoor community and allow neighbors to connect and build their ideal city.

This creativity springs from the garden leaders who care for these sites year after year, and these gardens continue to blossom through the steady support of NeighborSpace.
We protect the land. We provide insurance, access to water, education, tools, and other resources. We offer both emergency support and long-range organizing. NeighborSpace does all this so neighbors can focus on what matters: stewarding their gardens, their neighborhoods, and their city.
