Welcome to the Ithaca Community Gardens, a program of Project Growing Hope!

Project Growing Hope is a membership organization devoted to furthering community food self-sufficiency. Our main project is the Ithaca Community Gardens. As a member you can choose to maintain your own garden plot, use the garden tools, manure, and compost, and take part in and organize educational workshops and social events. And of course there’s the opportunity to learn and share with a community of friendly gardeners! There are also many opportunities to get involved in community events. Check out our events calendar below for upcoming garden events.
