Together we are
Growing Gardens, Growing Communities.
We're hitting the road!
Join us virtually on a journey through our prison garden program: Lettuce Grow. We’ll be visiting with current students that are encarcerated at Columbia River Correctional, a graduate of the program who was recently released, program staff and supporters. This is a rare opportunity to see and celebrate the work that we’ve been doing this year.
WHO WE ARE
Growing Gardens uses the experience of growing food in schools, backyards and correctional facilities to cultivate healthy and equitable communities.
Growing Gardens is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, started in 1996 in Portland, Oregon. We currently run programming across the state of Oregon and are providing professional training and community organizing on a national level.
Over the last 24 years we have developed specialized programs that utilize the powerful human experience of growing food to improve diets and health outcomes, bring science education to life, and create meaningful pathways to employment. We hope you will join us on the path to make transformative changes towards a more just and equitable society.
