a grassroots effort to foster spaces for growing food, building community, and caring for our natural world
We began by transforming an overgrown, abandoned lot on Sumner Street into a thriving urban oasis. It’s now a place where people relax, enjoy nature, grow food together, share a meal together, make music, pick up their CSA, or attend a comedy event. Volunteers learn about gardening, rainwater conservation, food waste management, and other eco-conscious practices, all while getting to know their neighbors and having fun. We now own two sites (one of which has a first-of-its-kind geo-thermally powered greenhouse), operate five others, offer experiential and informal environmental education programs for school children, train teenagers for green jobs, and bring local fresh food to neighbors of all economic levels.
