We will grow wherever there is soil: Public crops, yardsharing, permaculture for all.

We HOMEGROWNers are determined to grow and eat homegrown food wherever we are. Container gardening, balcony and fire escape gardening, plain old terra firma gardening, you name it, we grow where we can. Here are a few newer sites that can be a resource when looking for creative, sustainable and fiscally smart ways to have fresh, safe, and local homegrown food.
