Growing food
locally for neighbors

Our community-driven program is dedicated to ensuring food security for all, cultivating resilience, and fostering ecological awareness. 

Whether you’re a seasoned gardener or just getting your hands dirty for the first time, there’s a place for you in our network of gardens. 

Together, we’re transforming lawns into thriving green spaces that produce fresh, nutritious food for local food pantries. 

But G4G is more than just gardening—it’s about building a resilient community that cares for each other and the planet. Please join us in growing a greener, healthier future for everyone.

Who We Are | Who We Serve | How We Grow | How To Volunteer

Who We Are

We are a vibrant community of homeowners, churches, and schools that have donated part of our lawns or existing gardens to grow food for our local food pantries. We are gardeners with a wide range of experience, some just starting to put our hands in the soil.

Working together, we have created each other’s gardens and shared gardening practices. Along the way, we’ve forged partnerships with food pantries, organizations, and individuals and enhanced our community’s resilience.

Who We Serve

  • Economic pressures can affect anyone. Our communal responsibility is to contribute to relieving some of that pressure.
  • We provide fresh, nutritious food that is scarce in food pantries.
  • Our harvest is donated to patrons of the Council of Social Concern, and the En Ka Food Pantry.

G4G participants learn how to nurture and protect the microbial life that naturally produces healthy plants without additives.

Our preferred gardening methods are regenerative and organic practices which are sustainable ways of recarbonizing the soil.

For more information, go to our Regenerative Agriculture web page.

If you’re interested in volunteering with G4G, we could use the help. All are welcome regardless of experience level.
We can accommodate student community service requirements. Here are some ways you can volunteer:

Lead Gardeners

  • For those with gardening experience and whole-season availability, we need volunteers to oversee garden plots of owners who due to health reasons are unable to garden.

Donating Land

  • We are growing Gardens for Good. If you are interested in turning some of your yard into a new vegetable garden.
    If you want to donate some of your lawn you don’t need to be the gardener for it. As long as we can find gardeners to match up with your property we will be happy to grow a garden there.

Planting and Weeding Assistance

  • Work alongside another gardener or mind a garden for someone on vacation.

Harvesting

  • Work alongside another gardener.

Transportation

  • Drive produce to the food pantries.
