You can help build more gardens for schools, families and seniors in 2018
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.
Whole Cities Foundation, an independent nonprofit foundation established by Whole Foods Market, awarded Gloucester-based Backyard Growers a $5,000 Community First Grant, to fund healthy eating initiatives in the city.
