The initiative includes private and public land, including a number of community gardens.

Trevor Crawley writes, "Gardeners interested in using publicly owned land, such as park space, must be part of a non-profit society and be caretakers of the gardens to have access to the land.

Community gardens get assistance from the city through irrigation hookups and disposing of weeds and clippings.
