How We Do That
Communities & Community Gardens
We organize with community, neighborhood and civic groups to establish and maintain community gardens to educate and provide fresh food for under served areas.
We construct raised gardening beds and other structures to help bring the joy of gardening to more people.
We construct Hoop Houses to provide season-extending protection and warmth for your plants, and because of their affordable prices, our high tunnels won’t break the bank either.
“Give a man a fish, he eats for a day. Teach a man to fish and he eats for a lifetime.”
Building communities on a healthy foundation starts with building members of the community. The Food Lab is involved in every step of the process from education to planning and development. By providing the means for individuals to grow their own food, we are empowering them to take charge of their health and eating habits. Individuals gain access to crops that otherwise aren’t available, as well as resources such as professional farmers and tools, to build and design a garden catered to their needs. If you are unable to grow at home, cultivating unused land and vacant spaces into personal or community gardens not only beautifies an otherwise forgotten piece of land, it also turns strangers into neighbors.
