What is a Community Garden

Any piece of land gardened by a group of people. We, at The Duluth Historical Society, have a broad definition of what a community garden entails. It can be urban, suburban, or roral. It can grow flowers or vegetables. It can be one community plot, or can be many individual plots as we have here at the Strickland House. These individual plots are maintained by individual "owners" of their plot.
