Community Partner Gardens
The Community Partner Gardens program assists community groups, faith-based organizations, neighborhood associations, and other non-profits with having successful vegetable gardens. Organizations can sign up as a Community Partner Garden member with KCCG to receive technical assistance and access low-cost gardening resources. Across the metropolitan area, local nonprofits are improving service to their clients through gardening with assistance from KCCG, providing food and opportunities for nutrition education, skills development, recreation, and therapy to their clients, including seniors and those with mental and physical disabilities.
