Growing Together

About our gardens

The first of our local community gardens started in the Grant Beach neighborhood in 2010. Right away, the garden attracted neighborhood volunteers to join together and help Springfield Community Gardens grow.

Our gardens’ permanent and semi-permanent infrastructure and commitments from the City of Springfield mean many of our gardens are here to stay, and the undeniable impact on the area has led to more and more support from Springfield residents and business leaders.
