Empowering Community, One Garden at a Time

Gardens Project of North Coast Opportunities, Inc, has been empowering community, one garden at a time since 2007. We have built and oversee a growing network of 56 school and community gardens. In these gardens, people grow healthy, local, sustainable food for themselves and their families and friends, get to know their neighbors and grow community, and enjoy safe and wholesome places for exercise and play. The gardens are designed to be accessible to all, including people with physical differences, and are appropriate for gardeners of all skill levels as they act as living classrooms.

With the novel Coronavirus, Gardens Project has adapted, adjusted, and become inspired to support a resilient future. Our first response was to ensure that all gardens were safe by providing information and guidelines. Once we were confident that everyone was safe, we set our sights to the future.The existing gardens are more important than ever for providing healthy food and herbal medicine for years to come.

With your support, we pledge to:

~Safely deliver seeds from our seed bank and plant starts from local farms for home and community gardeners to start their gardens

~Ensure that the 56 existing gardens are fully utilized starting this summer, 2020

~Host a video webinar on How to Start and Run a Community Garden

~Make our resources available to anyone interested in starting their own community garden or in joining one in the Gardens Project Network
