Our Purpose

Our purpose is to improve accessibility to healthy food. We do that by transforming spaces in and around town into edible landscapes, interplanting greens, herbs and fruits among the ornamentals. We strive to replace lawns with help-yourself edible gardens and tree plantings, and inspire our community and neighbors to do the same, while improving biodiversity and regenerating the soil to support life. We address food security and access to nutritious food by providing free fresh produce at our Share the Harvest stand, which operates from July through October. Education is another important part of our mission. We offer events including free hands-on workshops on growing, preparing and preserving fresh fruits and vegetables. We model and instruct regenerative soil-building practices. We envision a community where abundance and beauty thrive in edible landscapes, while improving the overall health and resilience of our community and our planet.
