How we use your gift

Your gift supports a vibrant, skilled community dedicated to creating more opportunities for metro residents to grow healthy, local food.

Our transit-accessible urban garden needs garden supplies — nutrients, tools, and equipment — to grow produce that is hardy and nutritious.

Our garden instructors teach local residents the skills they need for food growing success.

Our demonstration garden shows gardeners of all levels the crops, techniques, and structures that grow food sustainably in our region.

Our tuition assistance fund enables low-income families to participate in our classes and other programs.
