The Changing Face of America’s Public Garden Spaces and Community Gardens
Public gardens across America are responding to an influx of refugees/immigrants from many parts of the world with edible garden displays showcasing the increased diversity of our visitors. Community gardens and urban agriculture projects that are supported by public gardens across the country are likewise providing increased access to an ever more diverse range of immigrants and resettled refugees. Seeds and traditional farming and gardening techniques from distant regions are now utilized in our gardens.
