DC leads the country for local community gardens, according to a new report issued by The Trust for Public Land.  With the most community gardens per capita, DC has many plots of land often divided up into individual gardens, many owned by the city or National Park Service.  Even if residents don’t have a yard, community gardens are one way to enjoy green spaces and do some plantings.  There are plenty of plots of land and volunteer opportunities in local community gardens for Washington residents with a green thumb who want to plant fruits and vegetables or even to help others.
