COMMUNITY GARDENS

Urban, suburban, and rural community gardens are growing in popularity across the country and Metro North has established a community garden on Notter Avenue in the Metro Gardens neighborhood. Residents can grow flowers and vegetables or undertake any type of community-based horticulture endeavor. Community gardens like Metro North's are also a great way to get both children and adults involved in beautifying the neighborhood and establishing healthier eating habits, all while working with nature.
