We are a cooperative program created by the interdepartmental relationship of the University of Florida and the Pasco County Extension Office. The Community Gardens program originated in the low income communities of Dade City, and is run by the County Extension Director, Dr. Whitney Elmore and Community Gardens Program Assistants, Kyle Christmas and Chris Carreiro.
The program provides the guidance and help necessary to develop and create community gardens from ground zero, instilling key components of sustainability in the process. We provide all of the necessary knowledge for anyone looking to build a community garden, and grow their own food. Along the journey, the program also hosts gardening, cooking, and nutrition classes.
