Organization Information

Mission Statement

Our mission is to educate and assist Central Texans in building organic food gardens. Our vision is to help Central Texans grow their own nutritious, affordable food grown in ways that conserve natural resources, promote self-reliance, and strengthen communities.

Description

GCP serves its mission through direct service programs and education. Our organic food gardening program provides education, materials, and volunteer labor to build gardens for people who lack access to nutritious, affordable food. We work with families and individuals that are low-income, disabled, elderly or single caregivers, as well as schools, after-school programs, transitional housing communities and other organizations.

We also provide education about the methods and benefits of organic vegetable growing. GCP holds a number of Biointensive Gardening Skills Workshops per year that are open to the general public, and we are happy to do presentations for specific groups as well.

I have been volunteering with Green Corn Project now for the last two years. It is fun, educational, and can be hard work, which makes it satisfying for those who like to help others and learn about gardening at the same time. I highly suggest this if you are interested in learning about gardening.

This is one of the most satisfactory volunteer events I've participated in. The leaders were nice, friendly and gave a very interesting introduction to organic gardening. The work was meaningful, and instantly gratifying. I'm looking forward to future events!
