Partner Programs Reimagined: Community Gardens


Once a partner always a partner! We are proud to be connected to organizations who are at the forefront of ensuring healthy food access during this critical time. Their sacrifice, ingenuity, and commitment inspire us!

We are honored to support the work of community gardens and help connect like-minded partners by sharing their innovative ideas and how some have reimagined their programs. 

Plants Go Mobile

Community partners are creating sprouts and seedlings for their local communities to come by and pick up or for delivery to help neighbors continue their own growing at home.
