Organization Information

Mission Statement

We create and support onsite, organic, regenerative and food gardens with residents of affordable housing and homeless shelters.

Description

Starting in 2019, and in partnership with Community Corporation of Santa Monica , Safe Place for Youth and The People Concern , Growing Hope Gardens successfully opened and expanded 10 urban, organic, regenerative resident food gardens and fruit trees, at distinct affordable housing and homeless shelter properties in Los Angeles County

All of the resident food gardens are supported with our weekly maintenance visits, with the goals of helping the gardens thrive and, increasing onsite resident knowledge and stewardship. This approach maximizes chances of success at growing food and supports resident engagement. Educational signage informing how harvest, care, nutritional content, and suggested use is placed each season in the gardens. We also support the increase in plant-based knowledge with our online portal.
