Looking for a community garden near you?

As part of the increasing demand for local and sustainable produce, community gardens are sprouting and growing throughout Monroe County. Our hope is to connect local residents with existing community gardens while promoting the efforts of those making these gardens possible.

Below is a directory of existing community gardens in Monroe County that we are aware of. Please contact us if you would like more information about community gardening or if you know one to add to the list! Cornell Cooperative Extension of Monroe County does not manage these community gardens. We are providing this list as a community service.
