“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.

Celebrate the holidays with us!


Please join us for this is a wonderful holiday tradition with CommunityGrows and all our partners. Stop by the Hayes Valley South Community Room, at 403 Rose Street (near Buchanan Street) from 1-4 PM on Saturday, December 12th to enjoy refreshments and create a wreath and some cards for the holidays. Boughs of evergreens, frames, and trinkets will be available

“More Brussels Sprouts, please?!”


Seed to Mouth students were abuzz with excitement to cook with Chef Chauncy Yarngo on November 16th. CHef Chauncy is from the Kpella tribe in Liberia who came to America at a younger age and has become a professional chef in the United States. He prepared a plate with grapes and pears in the shape of a turkey for Thanksgiving and then created a delicious Brussels Sprout stir-fry that everyone gobbled up!



Since 1994, CommunityGrows has been planting seeds in schools and in neighborhood gardens, inspiring our youth to live healthier lives and become leaders in their communities. We have big plans to expand and deepen our impact in 2016, your support makes all the difference!
