What is the Sierra Gardens Program?

Building on successful models throughout the country, Sierra Gardens supports families in growing a portion of their fruits and vegetables at home.  Sierra Harvest works with each family to build a backyard garden, providing classes, mentoring, and supplies for two years to ensure a successful experience. This will set the stage for a lifetime of home gardening, access to nutritious foods, physical activity and mental health. It will also be a bridge to healthy food choices. Program graduates will have the opportunity to engage as community leaders by mentoring new gardeners.
