Starting community gardens


Attention frustrated apartment dwellers: Boise Parks & Recreation (BPR) recognizes community gardens are a valuable assest that contribute to community development and education, environmental awareness and positive social interaction. The ever-increasing population has brought in numerous requests for community gardens from Boiseans who do not have the opportunity to garden, so if you or your organization are interested in developing a community garden on city property, BPR is all ears. Check out BPR's community garden policy at or contact Jerry Pugh at For additional information on how to develop a community garden, visit the American Community Gardening Association's Web site.
