Edible gardens for schools and communities

Growing Space

Providing space for plants and people to grow in harmony, we transform urban green spaces into edible teaching gardens for nearby schools and for our community.

OUR MISSION

We are on a mission to give more people in our community access to direct interaction with nature.  Our edible teaching gardens are urban green oases in which adults and children alike are invited to touch, dig, plant, harvest and taste.  Through such interaction, we hope to develop a deeper appreciation and a greater sense of responsibility for our environment.

Based in Kensington and Chelsea, we are uniquely positioned to connect local schools, who have limited outdoor space, to local churches, who have gardens ready to be creatively shared.

Growing Space makes sure the gardens are properly maintained and cared for by employing a site-specific environmental coordinator.
