We cultivate healthy youth through growing gardens in low-income, diverse communities
We believe deeply in what we do and the change that we are able to make right here in San Francisco. We teach gardening, cooking, and healthy living to our youth, providing them with amazing outdoor experiences right here in the Western Addition.
New Director of Programs
Meet our new Director of Programs, Kelly ErnstFriedman. Her recent work with the Oakland School District on the development of a food recovery program inspired her to seek out CommunityGrows.
Volunteer with our teen program, The BEETS (Band of Environmentally Educated and Employable Teens). Summer session: June 10-August 7th. Youth acquire job readiness skills; cultivate leadership and interpersonal skills; and develop a commitment to environmental stewardship and food justice.
Our goal is to raise $10,000 dollars this Spring 2014, ensuring smooth operations into the new year. This is your opportunity to show your commitment to our good work and help to grow healthy youth.
