From Bare Spaces to Growing Projects

We spent time with some of our favorite nonprofits and asked them what makes them unique.

“We are lucky at The Growing Project to take part in the transformation of bare spaces into beautiful food-producing gardens. Together we are growers, educators, and organizers, and our goal is to make it easy for everyone to obtain nourishing foods regardless of their income. We are community organizers and chaos chasers, designers, and demolishers, students and teachers, foragers and cultivators. We wander this city in search of spaces. Spaces to break ground or to build it up, looking for those forgotten places that make you think: this could be a garden.”
