What we're about
The Food is Free Project is about people choosing to improve their lives, the lives of others in their communities, and the lives of generations to come beginning by growing fresh, local food together.
We teach people how to connect with their neighbors and line their street with front yard community gardens which provide free harvests to anyone.
The gardens are built and offered for free using salvaged resources that would otherwise be headed to the landfill. By using drought-tolerant, wicking bed gardens, these low maintenance gardens only need to be watered every 2-4 weeks.
This simple tool introduces people to a very easy method of growing organic food with very little work. A wide variety of vegetables along the block promote neighbors to interact and connect, strengthening our communities while empowering them to grow their own food.
