Planning, Planting and Maintaining Edible Gardens Resource Guide

There are many different types of gardens: community, school, faith, hospital, etc., that can benefit a community. With proper planning and attention, these gardens can grow just about anywhere from roofs to parking lots to the grounds of a building. This guide provides resources for groups wishing to develop a garden that will flourish and provide a bounty of fresh, healthy fruits, vegetables and herbs.
