Growing Gardens uses the experience of growing food in schools, backyards and correctional facilities to cultivate healthy, equitable communities.
Bottom Line for Portland
Last year, we partnered with 1,146 adults and children to build home gardens and educational opportunities, 2,718 children got outside and enjoyed learning about science in our Youth Grow program, and over 130 inmates completed horticulture certification and grew 400,000 pounds of fresh produce that were served in prison meals.

“Fue una buena experiencia y disfrutamos mucho el jardín con mi familia y me sentí con éxito de ver el logro con mis verduras que coseché.” (“It was a wonderful experience and my family greatly enjoyed the garden, and I felt successful seeing the accomplishment of the vegetables that I harvested.”) —Home gardener
