Since 2010, the ECCGA has helped start and support over 175 gardens in Eastern Connecticut.  We have worked with gardeners in the community and in schools, social service housing, senior centers, faith-based organizations, and prisons. There are many local organizations such as the UConn Extension Service, Eastern Connecticut Conservation District, and UCONN Master Gardeners who are also ready to assist. The rewards are continuing high quality produce grown economically with camaraderie and improved neighborhood morale. Below is a small sampling of the gardens we support.
