USDA Mapping of Public Gardens

The USDA has launched a new database of what they’re calling ‘People’s Gardens’ in an effort to support the effort of communities around the country that are coming together to grow fresh food.

USDA Press Release:

[Excerpt] Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack today urged people across the Nation to start People’s Gardens in their communities and to register their gardens in the new People’s Garden database, a tool for USDA partners to showcase their People’s Gardens on an interactive map.

“…through the People’s Garden initiative, people can be engaged in their own towns and neighborhoods to promote access to fresh, healthy food, as well as sustainable practices,” said Vilsack.
