Community gardens offer many benefits — gardening knowledge, social bonding and, most importantly, the increased production and consumption of nutritious, fresh and locally grown fruits and vegetables.
Best Practices for Garden Visitors
If a community garden remains open to visitors beyond volunteers/maintenance crews, visitors should take additional precautions to allow safe enjoyment and minimize the potential spread of COVID-19.
-Do not visit the garden if you are feeling ill or showing signs of illness
-Wash/sanitize your hands before and after visiting the garden
-Follow all new and existing garden policies
-Maintain social distancing (6 feet between individuals)
-Limit interactions and time spent in the garden
-Minimize contact with surfaces (e.g., doorknobs, gates, latches, railings)
-Wash your hands and any produce you bring home to reduce contamination
