ABOUT US


 

 

Our mission is to create gardens, grow and share food, and teach gardening techniques. We get to know our neighbors by working as a team to build a more vibrant and sustainable community—a unique sense of place, reflecting our neighborhood.

 

Our goal is to build a garden where everyone can participate in growing healthy food for themselves and their family. Through donations and volunteer hours, there will be space available for any committed community member to grow or learn to grow food and live a healthier and more sustainable lifestyle.
