Growing Gardens’ mission is to reduce hunger. We work with thousands of volunteers to build home and school organic vegetable gardens. We provide three years of support, supplies, seeds and plants, mentoring and more.

When we support low-income Portland residents with the resources and education they need to grow their own food—they become healthier, more physically active and self-reliant— and that’s a recipe for strong, sustainable and vibrant communities.

It all starts with a single seed. Help us plant one. Please donate today! Thank you so much your generosity is greatly appreciated.
