Community Garden Program

Orange County Board of County Commissioners voted to approve a Community Garden Program in Orange County, Florida.

Groups of interested County Citizens should contact me at the County Extension Education Center (407) 254-9200 to discuss the possibility of establishing Community Gardens at County Parks and County Community Centers in the neighborhoods. These Community Gardens are for the purpose of growing vegetables for self consumption using organic methods.

Educational material and other assistance is available to help you through the process of creating your Community Garden Organization.

Educational classes and hands-on demonstrations will complement your progress toward creating your Community Garden.
