UNH Cooperative Extension has created a map of community gardens in New Hampshire to build a network for sharing information among gardeners and organizers. We have developed a survey for community garden organizers to fill out that places your community garden on the map and builds that network.
This interactive map provides the following:
information about community gardens in NH – what each garden offers and how people can get involved
educational resources for community gardens
contact information to connect with other community garden organizers to share new ideas and discuss issues
a place to share your community garden’s donation and volunteer needs
By completing the linked survey your community garden will become part of a statewide NH community garden network where you can connect with other community gardens and people can learn about your community garden. If you do not want information about your garden to be shared publicly or put on the map, we’d still like to know about your efforts and include you in the network so that we can share ideas, best practices, safety guidelines, etc. You can still fill out the survy, and there will be an option to make your entry be public or not.
The survey takes about 20 minutes to complete, so get yourself in a comfy place before you start. Unfortunately, there isn’t the ability to save and come back to the survey, so may want to have a photo ready to upload and gather any contact information before you begin. The information that you submit will go directly into the story map (if you choose the public option) so please check over any text for accuracy. After the survey is submitted there is the ability to update any information.
