A community garden is any piece of land gardened by a group of people,
utilizing either individual or shared plots on private or public land.
Community gardens provide access to such foods for the communities in which they are located: locally grown food decreases a community's reliance on fossil fuels for transport of food from large agricultural areas and reduces a society's overall use of fossil fuels to drive in agricultural machinery.
Community gardens members and participants can trade and exchange products using local currency as the SCEC and surplus can be reinvested into communited-oriented ventures (i.e. - charitable organizations).
