Backyard Growers is a grassroots organization helping to reshape Gloucester's relationship with food. We provide support and resources to establish vegetable gardens at homes, housing communities, organizations, and schools. In the end, we create life-long gardeners inspired by the power of growing one's own food.



We provide gardens, educational programs, and garden-to-cafeteria opportunities for Gloucester schools.
