Community Garden Project - Elwood Area 

The community garden at DOH Manatee, Manatee Square Garden, is a partnership between DOH, Manatee County Government and UF/IFAS Extension.

The Garden has earned several grants and awards. Membership is overseen by UF/IFAS Extension. In 2022 Manatee Square Garden produced nearly 1000 lbs of food, held educational classes and over 300 hours of volunteer work. Community Gardens are valuable to our county and increasing the development is beneficial. Adding gardens promotes environmental learning and education, increases access to fresh food, promotes physical activity and movement and aids in developing community and social interaction.

We have interest in adding a community garden in the Elwood Area (4008 39th Street East, Bradenton, FL, 34208) and would like neighbors feedback. Take the survey here to leave feedback.
