“Can we make a green salad every week?”

-Abdul, 4th grader

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.
