I started this group last year as a way for my family to connect with others that had an interest in growing their food, and swapping tips and extra harvest. It has grown much more than I could have imagined and is now a great community of local gardeners!

SPHE growers get together to support each other in our community and to encourage more people to grow food, raise chickens, preserve, and of course cook. We are like-minded people in the area that meet, share experiences, and learn from each others strengths and weaknesses. We exchange knowledge, fruits, veggies, seeds, cuttings, gear, labor for land use, and buy in bulk. We gather to swap, and potluck, and to learn more about interest related subjects from experts. We also are helping to start a community garden in South Pasadena. You do not have to have a garden to be part of this group, just an interest in growing food and building a supportive community around you!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
