We support vulnerable populations
through organic gardening education.
These are custom-designed programs that grow organic gardening skills to benefit vulnerable populations, from teaching nutrition awareness to nutrition education, through every step of producing and growing organic food in raised bed gardens. These programs enrich quality of life for participants, either as beneficiaries or volunteers.
Partnering agencies agree to commit to fully support the program for a minimum of 5 years, through funding, sharing of volunteer resources, media support and full participation within the agency. The tools we use to build these programs are as unique as the programs themselves; we use re-purposed materials as often as possible and general contracting tools to build the actual gardens. We use social and regular media outlets to grow support and participation in the programs. Additionally, we build upon the values of social work principles to create the programs for beneficiaries.
