Community garden locations

If you are interested in growing your own food but don't have space for a garden, then how about renting a plot in a community garden near you? 

Penn Yan Community Garden (PYCG) - The PYCG is located at the end of Pleasant Ave., just a short walk from downtown Main St.  Members manage and care for the garden cooperatively, and are given an individual plot, access to water and tools, and a share of compost as a part of their membership.
