We're increasing access by growing the Backyard Gardener Network through outreach, regular workshops, reestablishment of the tool and seed lending libraries.
With the help of a very committed team of volunteers we have just installed raised beds in the backyard of four residents of East Palo Alto. The 4×8 foot garden beds, which included soil and compost, will be ready to grow plenty of vegetables in the next spring. These garden beds will help East Palo Altans have more economically viable means of consuming nutritious food.
Please use our new interactive map to learn more about these gardeners and several of the other members in the Backyard Gardener Network.
We thank Get Healthy San Mateo County for making this project possible.
