We are a diverse group of volunteers drawn together by our interest in gardening and our conviction that individuals working together for the common good can make a difference.

Our inspiration for this project takes many forms:

  • Most of us are gardeners wanting to share our love of growing as well as the harvest.
  • Many of us love to talk about and cook food.  Sharing new tastes and recipes gives us joy.
  • We are motivated to reduce food waste, beginning in our own gardens and by gleaning at local farms.
  • All of us believe communities are stronger when everyone has access to local, fresh fruits and vegetables.
