Mission Statement

In the soil of our urban farm and garden, people find the tools they need to build a home in the world.


The Homeless Garden Project provides job training, transitional employment and support services to men and women experiencing homelessness.

By bringing people together from throughout our community in the beauty and security of our certified 3.5-acre organic garden, we hope to break down the isolation and stigmas associated with homelessness.

We practice and teach principles of economic and ecological sustainability through classes and hands-on experience.

We invite you to the Garden from dawn to dusk. Enjoy a moment or a day away from your busy lives, take a stroll in our garden, volunteer one morning or participate in a long-term project.
