Promoting Organic Suburban Agriculture To Fight Hunger And Food Insecurity
The mission of The GardenWorks Project is to promote organic suburban agriculture to improve the well-being of our community, the environment, and those facing food insecurity. We empower, educate, and support all food growers in their efforts to nourish their families and neighbors in need. Partnering with over 40 food pantries, social service agencies, and community organizations, we identify clients who both are in need of food assistance and want to grow their own food. We then work with these individuals to build community gardens and home gardens by providing garden beds, seeds, soil, and expert guidance. Since our founding, The GardenWorks Project has built more than 400 home gardens and served more than 1500 people.
