The vision of the GLEE Key West Community Garden is to develop individual plots, common areas, a food forest,
rain-harvesting and composting systems that demonstrate environmental stewardship, sustainability, water conservation,
resource management, historical relevance, and healthy food cultivation on and off site.
Additionally, the garden design will make maximum use of available space and offer gardeners the best
