Ways to Get Involved
Find a garden
There are dozens of community gardens in Leon County, but if there isn’t an active one nearby, Leon County’s Community Garden Program offers an opportunity to change that.
Community Garden Program
Leon County’s Community Garden Program offers technical, material and grant support to citizens looking to start or revitalize a community garden anywhere in the County. Grant funds are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis as long as they are available. Gardens are separated into three categories: County, School Stakeholder, and Non-School Stakeholder. For more details, see the applications linked below.
In areas where there is vacant County land that has been determined suitable for gardening purposes, community members can apply to use the land to start a garden. Material and technical support and grants up to $500 are available.
