Establishing Land-Use Protections for Community Gardens

Local government leaders are in a unique position to promote healthy eating and active living in their communities by supporting community gardens. Community gardens can improve nutrition, physical activity, community engagement, safety, and economic vitality for a neighborhood and its residents and provide environmental benefits to the community at large.

Document includes a model general plan as well as model zoning ordinances.
