Community Gardens


Community gardens provide fresh produce and contribute to a sense of community and connection to the environment. 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 consist of areas where fresh vegetables, fruits, and other healthy foods are sparse due to lack of farmers markets, grocery stores and other retail establishments that can provide these foods to residents.
