No Garden? No Problem!

Can’t Garden? Find out who can!

Find a Patch-Match and get Garden Sharing.

Lend and Tend is a new way to meet people for the purpose of sharing gardens.

We are a friendly community made of two schools of people; a) people who volunteer to help to Tend to other people’s gardens in return for sharing their garden space and b) people who own gardens who volunteer their gardens to be shared in exchange for some help in Tending them.

Why? Some of us have little to no personal garden space and some of us cannot spend time in the garden for many reasons; injuries, health or a lack of time.

Together we volunteer to benefit one another’s well-being, care for our environments and best of all; grow delicious fresh produce.

Garden sharing with Lend and Tend means we can make new friends with people we’d never otherwise meet. Garden sharing will knit our neighborhoods.

So if you’ve no garden, it’s no problem and if you can’t garden, find someone who can!
