About Us


Everyone's Garden provides the opportunity for people of all abilities to share their experiences and learn from one another in a sustainable environment.  We host an accessible and inclusive small-scale organic farm and education center that models for sustainable urban agricultural practices. Our programs are centered on experimental learning of a wide range of skills and expertise in farming, community development, and health and education.

MISSION, VISION, and CORE VALUES 
Mission: To help people in need, through the garden to provide healthy food, and a positive experience. We promote inclusion and accessible garden programs as an important part of our mission.

Vision: We seek to build partnerships sharing the value of sustainable farming and developing an inclusive environment. To meet these goals, we propose supporting multiple projects, community gardens, and an educational center. The synergies of the multiple projects are leveraged to appeal to many constituents and offer multiple avenues for participation through the sharing of common resources.
