Community gardens provide fresh produce and contribute to a sense of community and environmental connection. Summit County Public Health partners with Let’s Grow Akron to expand community gardens throughout Summit County, especially in locations that are deemed food deserts. Food deserts are areas where fresh vegetables, fruits, and other healthy foods are sparse due to the lack of farmer's markets, grocery stores, and other retail establishments to provide these foods to residents.
