Community gardens and urban agriculture

At TheDCH we understand that food is a universal language, and that growing produce can play a powerful role in bringing communities together. We’re committed to promoting urban agriculture in cities and towns throughout Delaware. We work at the grassroots level to address social, economic, educational, and environmental issues, and help to create healthy and sustainable communities.


Our projects include community gardens, container plantings, institutional gardens, school gardens and urban farms. These initiatives creatively strengthen relationships between community-based organizations, non-profits, government leaders, and individuals.

The Delaware Urban Farm and Food Coalition consists of people who are committed to finding ways to ensure food justice for residents of the First State.

Today TheDCH supports over 20 community gardens throughout New Castle County. Located in vacant lots and public spaces...
