The first of our Springﬁeld Community Gardens (SCG) was the Grant Beach Community Garden. Right away, the garden attracted neighborhood volunteers to join together and help SCG grow. Its permanent infrastructure and commitments from the City of Springﬁeld mean the Grant Beach Community Garden is here to stay, and the undeniable impact on the area has led to more and more support from Springfield residents and business leaders. In turn, SCG has been able to break ground on community gardens throughout Springfield.
Sprouting in Your Neighborhood
Springfield Community Gardens is just that—a community. Tending the garden alongside one another fosters involvement and growth for the neighborhood as a whole, so it's only natural these gardens are growing strong around town. It's wonderful to see so many others joining the community, and we're to help plan or maintain as many neighborhood gardens as it takes to wipe out hunger in Springfield. What then? We'll spread roots all over The Ozarks.
