Building Community

Los Angeles Community Garden Council

butterfly
The Los Angeles Community Garden Council (LACGC) partners with 32 community gardens in LA County to take care of the business side of gardening and give you more time to get dirty in the garden! We also offer gardening advice and workshops to more than 125 community gardens in LA County. Our gardens include:

  • Traditional community gardens where people rent a plot to grow their own fresh produce
  • Educational gardens where we teach gardening, landscaping, nutrition and cooking
  • Urban farms where volunteers grow vegetables for local markets and people in need

The Los Angeles Community Garden Council’s mission is to strengthen communities by building new and supporting existing community gardens where every person in Los Angeles County can grow healthy food in their neighborhood

We envision a garden network for Los Angeles where people of all ages live healthy, active lives in a clean environment by growing fresh food. This network creates and fosters the meeting of people from diverse cultures to share the best growing techniques and urban agriculture practices, promotes social and economic justice, reduces household expenses, provides job training and beautifies our community.

LA Community Garden Council encourages you to vote Yes! on Measure P for Safe Neighborhood Parks in Los Angeles County.

Should Proposition P be approved, it would continue funding $54 million a year through an annual $23 per parcel special tax for 30 years. All funds must remain local within LA County and can only be used for parks, recreation, and open space projects: including community gardens!
