About Keene Community Garden Connections

Keene Community Garden Connections (CGC) is a project of the Antioch University New England Department of Environmental Studies. The purpose of our project is to build Keene’s local capacity to grow food and address issues of food insecurity related to
climate change, personal and communal health, and resiliency. With the help of a private donation from the Rashti Foundation, CGC supports the installation and cooperative maintenance of raised-bed gardens in partnership with local service agencies,
community members, students, staff, and faculty.

In 2011, CGC’s collaborations included Harper Acres’ Garden, the Garden of Eatin’, located on Castle Street, and the Keene Recreation Center Garden, located on Washington Street. In 2012, we are adding to these new collaborations to develop gardens with participants from the Woodward Home, a partnership between the Keene Family YMCA and Monadnock Family Services‘ InSHAPE Program, Keene Housing Authority‘s Building Bridges Clubhouse Youth Program, and the Keene Senior Center.
