The Montgomery Parks Community Garden Program includes 12 gardens across the county and serves over 500 families, working through 20 partners. The goal is to continue the expansion of the program by identifying suitable park locations for additional gardens.

Edgewood Neighborhood Park was identified as a suitable location in the department’s Community Garden Site Suitability Study based on criteria necessary for local food production. The intent of the project is to introduce a community garden that engages families in local food production in smaller spaces, address food security, and establish a model for future designs to come.

For more information about the program and the site suitability study, residents can watch the Community Garden Program Briefing(opens in a new tab) presented to the Planning Board on April 15th, 2021.
