Palmdale’s Community Garden program provides residents who lack gardening space a plot for growing their own produce. The program encourages neighbors to work side by side, eat healthier, share their harvest, exercise, and participate in their neighborhood's success. Priority is given to residents living in multifamily housing. In partnership with the City, Antelope Valley Partners for Health (AVPH) will help gardeners with programming, community events, and maintaining the gardens.

Gardens, scholars say, are the first sign of commitment to a community. When people plant corn they are saying, ‘Let's stay here.’ And by their connection to the land, they are connected to one another. –Anne Raver
