“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.

We’re hiring! Summer BEETS applications are due May 15th


This summer our focus is on water conservation and teens will  learn how to plant and maintain water-wise gardens while also gaining valuable leadership and job skills. The Summer BEETS schedule includes a camping trip in the Presidio, attending the Mo’Magic Workshop Series, and BEETS will also visit Green Gulch Farm in Marin.



Your generous gift will support more cooking classes in housing developments, more outdoor science adventures for k-5 students, and more internships for 15-19 year olds who learn environmental education through cultivating gardens.
