“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
BEETS teens get to 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 that of their neighborhood and communities.
Make a difference
Help our youth flourish in the garden this spring! Your spare change — and even part of your dinner bill — can add up to BIG change for kids in the Western Addition.
