Edgerton Community Garden is an organic garden located in Edgerton Park. Community gardens are noted for benefits that range from healthy foods to improving social connections. The Edgerton Community Garden was a recent addition to the park and was supported, “with help from staff in our department to kind of navigate the process of…getting whatever approvals were needed for [the garden],” says Brian Lloyd, Senior Planner of Roseville. The park and garden are located near two apartment complexes that have a large population of Karen, Hmong, and Spanish-speaking residents and therefore, all information is provided in four languages. The proximity of the garden to the apartment complexes increase access to fresh and culturally significant food for these populations. The garden plots are typically reserved ahead of time, showing the need for a community garden in this area of Maplewood.
