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.

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!
