Welcome to the virtual hub of the Brockton Community Garden Network; a place to find resources, more information about our gardens, and connect with other community members who are involved. After conducting focus groups around the city to discover what was necessary for residents to feel empowered to maintain community gardens and volunteer on a regular basis, we discovered that one huge component was that no one, central, organization housed the information and literature around how to continue the work of gardening. This new website is exactly that. EXPLORE to find planting guides, contacts to get in the loop at your local neighborhood garden beds, literature around nutrition, a recommended vendor guide and more!
