A community garden as a simple and sustainable form of agriculture is a piece of land that is cultivated together by a group of people. The harvest belongs to all participants. This is a great opportunity to get nutritious fresh fruits and vegetables without having to go to a supermarket, while connecting with others. The activities could include cleaning the space, planting new trees, watering plants, harvesting them if needed, creating signs for the plants, removing dry plants, and composting them.
