Community Gardens


Austin boasts more than 30 community gardens dotted around the city. Some have been around for decades, such as Sunshine Community Gardens and Deep Eddy Organic Community Gardens, and some have blossomed over the last decade with more than two-thirds sprouting since 2004. Much of that growth can be credited to the work of the Sustainable Food Center (SFC) and the Coalition of Austin Community Gardens, as well as increased attention from the City of Austin through the Sustainable Urban Agriculture department. Find a community garden in your area!
