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 have several volunteer opportunities coming up this August- come join us!!
