Our Work

Topeka Common Ground Promotes community gardening through a variety of methods.

TCG has created a network of community gardens. Some of the oldest gardens were started by Topeka Common Ground, and others came into the network on their own. We service church gardens, school gardens, neighborhood gardens, corporate and not for profit gardens and more.

We work with partners throughout Kansas to ensure that community gardens in Topeka have the free starts and seedlings they need to do their work.

Youth Programs
TCG believes that the best way to impact change is to start with youth. We encourage hands-on community gardening to teach children about nature, environment, nutrition, and sustainability.

Community gardens are enormously impactful for individuals, communities, and municipalities. Through community gardens, we improve health, environment, community engagement, and reduce poverty.
