BQLT’s gardens give community members access to critical green space in our environment. Our gardeners produce fruits, herbs, and vegetables while fostering a sense of community identity, ownership, and stewardship. These community gardens also provide safe outdoor spaces for children and families to play and interact. Our values reflect community engagement and involvement in community gardens.
