Aug. 11 is Minnesota’s Community Garden Day. The purpose of Community Garden Day is to provide an opportunity for the public to learn more about these community spaces directly from the people who steward them and the events will be as unique as the gardens in which they are located.

Community Garden Day is organized by Gardening Matters, a Twin Cities-based nonprofit that grows successful & sustainable community gardens in MN by supporting the gardeners that make them happen. This day recognizes the residents who work together to improve their communities through gardening.
