* No chemical fertilizers, many heirloom varieties, and most grown from organic seed.
All of the funds raised from our annual plant sale support us to continue to do powerful work as a local non-profit whose mission is to cultivating opportunity, education, and inspiration in our community to value, access, and grow healthy food.

Our mission is the seed of our intent, “to cultivate opportunity, education, and inspiration in our community to value, access, and grow healthy food.”
We continue to:
- Build, expand, and improve our community teaching gardens
- Educate the youth of our region by teaching them how to grow their own food, maintain healthy gardens, and prepare their own snacks and meals!
- Grow healthy food to share with everyone in our community, including local pantries and soup kitchens, doing our very best to make sure that we are all fed (especially those who are food insecure)
We are always recruiting garden volunteers during our growing season. We have already begun planting from seed in the greenhouse since late February and need lots of help in May as we get plants into the ground. Volunteers needed for watering, mowing, fence mending, weeding, harvesting and local pantry delivery May-September. All hands on deck again in late September when we put the “beds to bed” for the winter again. That job involves a lot of shoveling leaf mulch onto the beds and planting garlic for next Spring!
We are always looking for volunteers to lead seasonal food preservation workshops or teach classes on interesting subjects related to gardening and nutrition throughout the year.
