Resources for Community Gardeners

The LA Food Policy CouncilThe LA Food Policy Council’s Urban Agriculture Working Group believes that urban agriculture is about far more than growing vegetables on an empty lot. It’s about revitalizing and transforming unused public spaces, connecting city residents with their neighborhoods in a new way and promoting healthier eating and living for everyone. The Working Group’s vision is to create a world-class local food system in Los Angeles that is affordable, equitable, and environmentally sustainable.

The Los Angeles Community Garden Council (LACGC) – The Los Angeles Community Garden Council’s mission is to strengthen communities by building new and supporting existing community gardens where every person in Los Angeles County can grow healthy food in their neighborhood.

The Los Angeles Neighborhood Initiative (LANI) – The mission of Los Angeles Neighborhood Initiative (LANI) is to stimulate community-driven neighborhood revitalization. LANI facilitates stakeholder participation and decision-making, and promotes public/private partnerships that result in catalytic community improvement projects. Organizations and/or individuals with a plan for developing new community gardens may contact LANI for assistance with finding available land for their project.
