A community garden is a piece of land gardened collectively by a group of people, utilizing either individual or shared plots on private or public land. The garden may be used to produce fruit, vegetables, and/or ornamental plants.

While a community garden presence many benefits for the individuals involved and the community at large, it also includes challenges in its creation and maintenance.
