Community Gardens

The City of Boise and Boise Urban Garden School (BUGS) recognizes Community Gardening as a valuable recreational activity that contributes to community development, environmental awareness, and positive social interaction, and that supports increased local food production and food security.The increase in population in our city has brought about an increase in requests for Community Gardens from Boise citizens who do not have the opportunity to have a garden where they reside.

To encourage the development and maintenance of Community Gardens, Boise Parks and Recreation and BUGS collaborates with residents to develop Community Gardens on select City-owned property.

The Community Garden program offered by the Parks and Recreation Department, Boise Urban Garden School program supports the long-term sustainability of Community Gardens by offering technical support, education, and networking opportunities, and by promoting Community Garden best practices.
