Community Gardens Are Popping Up Everywhere
Do you want to have a greener and healthier environment? Or do you want to earn some extra cash? Perhaps you just want a new hobby? Or maybe you want to connect with people in your neighborhood, and meet new friends? I’ve just learned that we can do all these things at the same time!
I find this concept very intriguing … it’s income-generating and effective not only for land owners, but for gardeners as well. Check out this amazing site I found – primarily, it helps landowners rent out their garden plots or an unused portion of their land for the purpose of backyard gardening. Community gardens near me are everywhere on YardYum.
Let me give you a basic overview of how this works …
As landowners, go take a look at your land. You may be surprised to realize that there is vacant space or even a significant area that remains idle and left unused. Perhaps, that’s your picnic space, parking space, or you might just have no idea what to do with it. Well, there’s a new way to ease your concerns and it’s likely not something you’ve considered before. YardYum has an impressive idea which allows you to lease out your land to gardeners. This has been received around the world significantly in a lot of ways. It mutually helps both parties (the owner gets some money or fresh produce, and the gardener has a place to garden) and it’s good for the environment. The best thing about this futuristic gardening concept is that you’re facilitating a greener environment and helping your community as well.
For land-owners, here are a few things that you need to know:
- Fill out your land profile: List down the basic details of your available garden plot. All information provided are strictly confidential.
- Wait for a local gardener to contact you through the site.
- Set up an appointment with your chosen gardener so they can view the plot. Mutually agree on a contract so it will be legally binding and protect both parties.
- Enjoy the greener environment and fresh food, get paid and at the end of the gardening season you may choose to renew or end the contract.

If you’re a gardener, but you have no land to start your own garden (maybe you live in an apartment), or perhaps you’re interested in expanding your available gardening space (maybe you sell your crops at farmer’s markets), then I have a great idea for you. This is actually a two-way process of earning and building a better community around you, as well as helping the environment too. With YardYum, anyone can start gardening, the sky’s the limit!
Here’s some basic things to guide you:
- Create an impressive and realistic user profile. This gives you a better chance to be chosen by landowners whom you contact about their listings.
- Message owners and meet up as agreed. Then if you’re both comfortable, decide on terms of your contract.
- Enjoy your harvest and pay the owner (either with a portion of your garden’s yield, or money).
