Getting outside and gardening is known for its
physical, mental and emotional health benefits.
Participating in a community garden can
multiply these benefits.
From a sustainability perspective, community gardens are
great because they increase the collective community’s access
to fresh and local produce, improving Clearwater’s carbon
footprint by decreasing the travel distance food takes from
farm to table. This close proximity also helps to encourage a
more resilient food system.
Community gardens go even further to enable additional
social benefits, as they encourage neighbors to get to know
one another and support a sense of place and pride within
To support Clearwater’s existing community gardens
and encourage new community gardens to develop, the
city of Clearwater has created a Community Garden
Grant Program. Non-profit and neighborhood groups
are encouraged to apply. For more information, visit
