The Garden Project

Growing Healthy Food, Cultivating Connections

We provide access to land, how-to education, free seeds and plants, tool lending, a networking hub and more so that all community members can have access to fresh healthy food through gardening opportunities. We support a network of nearly 120 community gardens and 400 home gardens, helping to feed over 7,000 people.

Grow-A-Row connects gardeners with extra produce to pantry sites and community kitchens.
