Yards to Gardens – This is Neat

March 8, 2012

Yards to Gardens works kind of like a Craigslist for people who want to start a vegetable garden.  The idea for this website grew out of a problem that is common in urban environments: there are a lot of people in apartment buildings who would like to garden, but they don’t have space to do it.  Meanwhile, people in houses may want to have a vegetable garden put into their yards, but they don’t have time to do it.  Yards to Gardens helps these yard-owners and would-be gardeners find each other.

You post a “want ad” to the Yards to Gardens website listing what you’re looking for, a gardener or some gardening space, and the ad goes up on a giant map of the Twin Cities.  The icons on the map show you what yards and gardeners are in your neighborhood.

Currently the system only works in the Twin Cities area, but the Yards to Gardens staff are hoping to expand to other cities soon.
