Community Gardening Projects

Our Community Gardening projects cover a broad spectrum of concerns: We create raised vegetable gardens for homeowners, and install rain gardens in the yards of residents involved in our Home Construction Program. We also provide soil testing of buildable residential lots prior to any construction, so as future residents can be aware of any toxins on their property.

Our Garden of Eatin' program works with local school children to educate them about native berries and fruit/nut trees, while our Meg Perry Healthy Soil Project maintains a local nursery to grow plants vital to wetlands restoration, urban tree canopy and migrating bird habitat.

In addition, we maintain our own vegetable garden that provides greens for salads, and citrus fruits and berries for our volunteers.
