Lauren James started this petition to City of Diamond Bar

Sign the Petition today to support the city's special study session exploring the possibility of a community garden! Lets show the city the community is behind the idea by signing the petition.

Diamond Bar needs a city sponsored space designated for a community garden as the DB UCC community garden is closing in June 2021. Community gardens offer people and the community many benefits. They provide opportunities for both recreational gardening and food production. Community gardens are also great for the environment. Food grown locally reduces greenhouse gases produced by long distance transportation of food. Gardens also contribute to biodiversity of species and help to support populations of pollinators. Finally, community gardens bring people together, serve as a mental health therapy hub, teach children about sustainable living, and engage citizens with positive initiatives through sponsored events and workshops. 

Community gardens contribute to a healthy lifestyle by:

  • providing fresh, safe, affordable herbs, fruits and vegetables
  • helping to relieve stress and increase sense of wellness
  • getting people active, which improves overall physical health
  • providing social opportunities that build a sense of community and belonging
  • giving people an opportunity to learn and share knowledge on gardening, nature, and cooking

Community gardens benefit the community as they help:
build welcoming, safer communities

  • improve the look of neighborhoods
  • reduce pollution by sequestering carbon and reducing the shipping of food over long distances
    support pollinator habitats that are necessary for community well-being
  • reduce food insecurity
  • connect people to nature
  • educate people on where food comes from and provide opportunity for people, especially in urban spaces, to engage with their food system
  • provide an inclusive meeting area where people of all ages and cultural backgrounds can come together to share experiences and knowledge

Join the petition with your full name, address, and best contact! We'll be in touch, hopefully announcing the new garden and next steps.
