This thesis examines seven community gardens in the southeastern United States to determine if there are certain physical and aesthetic aspects of community gardens that help create a sense of community. After a description of the seven gardens, common themes found within the gardens are identified. These themes are used for the creation of a series of design vignettes, or ‘patterns,’ that reflect the vernacular design tradition in southeastern community gardens.
