Growing Gardens’ mission is to reduce hunger and transform lives through the experience of gardening and growing your own food. We work with thousands of volunteers to build organic vegetable gardens at homes, schools, and correctional facilities. We provide education, supplies, seeds and plants, mentoring, and more. Our work changes lives.

Our Programs

Growing Gardens teaches gardening skills and builds organic gardens for our low income neighbors, including a special program for the Latino community and Spanish-speaking children and families. At high poverty schools throughout Portland, we have in-class garden education programs, after school garden clubs, and summer garden camps. Growing Gardens also offers horticulture programs for inmates at Oregon’s adult and youth correctional facilities, which teach job skills and provide thousands of pounds of food annually for inmates and local food banks.
