Edible Landscaping & Community Gardening Toolkit for Affordable Housing Communities
This toolkit was developed through a collaboration between the Vermont Community Garden Network (VCGN) and Vermont Edible Landscapes (VEL). It builds on the work of the Vermont Housing and Conservation Board to assess and support food access at housing sites. The tips and resources in this document are drawn from interviews with housing communities across Vermont, successful practices and useful tools in the field, and personal experience of the authors with developing edible landscapes and community gardens at affordable housing communities.
The Toolkit is a working document that will be updated periodically with more resources, examples, and up-to-date information about community gardening and edible landscaping. We want to hear from you about how you’re using the document and related resources, and what you would like to see in future editions. Send comments to firstname.lastname@example.org.
