Tampa Bay's Community Gardens

Price of veggies got you down? Tired of seeing those vacant lots in your neighborhood attract all sort of rubbish? Perhaps you should consider embarking on a quest to create a community garden.

This week’s Urban Explorer chronicles the struggles for a community garden in Bartlett Park, and shines the spotlight on a few other gardens in Tampa Bay.

While researching the story, I noticed there aren’t any local resources for Tampa Bay residents wanting to start community gardens. In fact, I had difficulty cataloging just how many urban gardens there are in the region.

Besides the gardens noted in the article — Tampa’s Garden of Eden, St. Pete’s Azalea Community Garden and Palmetto Park — I found one in Gibsonton and another planned for Tampa Heights.

Do you know about any community gardens I’ve missed?
