Community Gardens: Why Urban Preppers Are Building These Gardening Plots

Recommended Posts

COMMUNITY GARDENS: WHY URBAN PREPPERS ARE BUILDING THESE GARDENING PLOTS

If you live in the city but you want to start prepping, don’t despair. You can start a kitchen garden in your own home, or you can join other preppers and cultivate a community garden.

Community gardens have once again risen in popularity, and this is probably because most city-dwellers live in apartments or skyscrapers, with little to no access to plots of land for gardening. (h/t to ThePrepperJournal.com)

The benefits of a community garden

A community garden refers to a plot of land shared by a group. The garden can either be separated into individual lots or the whole plot can be tended to as one garden. Community gardens are often used for food production or as gathering places. They can also be used to promote ecological and art awareness.

Gardens that follow the European style are usually assigned to a single person or a whole family so they can cultivate ornamentals or fruits and vegetables.

The plots in community gardens can vary in size, from small 1.5 square meter plots (4′ 9″ x 4′ 9″) in inner city gardens to large art gardens about 15 square meters (49′ x 49′).

Good idea!!

huh? so someone should do all the work so others can come eat the food? in a real emergency where the prepping is needed,what do you think will happen?  a community garden will belong to the community in that case. but in any case do you not see the problem?  how many ppl in the city trust their neighbors?

What an idea.  Especially if it brings people together to work on a common goal.  :clap1:
