“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.
Serving the Western Addition/Fillmore
In January, CG joined the African-American Arts and Culture Complex (AAACC) to honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. for the 2019 Day of Service. The day was filled with fun, special guest speakers, a film viewing, and a chance to connect.
A time of love and learning
In February, our BEETS led a celebration for children and seniors in our community. They created special stations where kids from Rosa Parks ExCEL and Booker T Washington Community Center like card making, a history of chocolate game, and a scavenger hunt.
Did you know that in the Western Addition there is only one full-service grocery store to serve over 51,000 residents? Increasing edible garden space and teaching children about the individual and community impact of healthy eating and environmental stewardship is vital for equity and justice.
