Public Housing Community Gardens
The foundations for healthy communities
Through our work in Public Housing Community Gardens, we provide opportunities for low income and migrant communities to access healthy, affordable, and culturally appropriate food. 
 
Today we support over 700 gardeners to keep their food culture and traditions alive, making these community gardens a place of cultural sharing and harmony.  
Community gardens on housing estates not only enhance the physical environment for residents but also provide an inclusive gathering place, where people can come together as equals across all cultures, lifestyles and socioeconomic backgrounds.
