We can help you grow YOUR own food!
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. Watch a short video that describes how the Sierra Gardens program can transform your life!
