“Can we make a green salad every week?”

-Abdul, 4th grader

We cultivate healthy youth through growing

gardens in low-income, diverse communities.

We believe deeply in what we do and the change that we are able to make right here in San Francisco. We teach gardening, cooking, and healthy living to our youth, providing them with amazing outdoor experiences right here in the Western Addition.

Engaged, active parents

As the school year comes to a close, we want to share our gratitude and highlight the Green Team. This group of parents are incredible advocates for CommunityGrows’ programs at Rosa Parks Elementary School.

Healthy, eco-literate youth


Want to join our team? Lead our teen development program serving low-income youth of color in San Francisco! BEETS teens earn money as they learn life and job skills, experience nature, explore issues of food equity and environmental justice, and improve both their personal well-being and their community.
