Building a just food system and a culture of gardening for all people
Since 2010 the Just Garden Project has built over 300 gardens—feeding thousands of people fresh, local, organic food.
The JGP builds subsidized food gardens for low income families in their homes and community centers. Located in King County Washington, we are in our seventh year building a just food system and culture of gardening for all people. We believe and prove that our health and hunger issues are related. Our community-based solutions support self-sufficient and empowered individuals working toward ending hunger and increasing health in our community in positive ways.
Value of a Garden
In one year, a JGP garden can produce upwards of $650 worth of organic fruits and vegetables! With 1 in 7 Americans on food stamps, these gardens offer a community solution to a nationwide issue. They offer hope and real sustenance for people struggling to make ends meet.
Where your donation goes
Donations employ our two staff members, support community celebrations and purchase supplies, seeds and education materials.
“We’ve been struggling a lot here to keep things afloat otherwise but the garden has provided an incredible source of delight and food as well as sanity keeper for both of us.”-2012 gardener
