The Gardens Project of North Coast Opportunities seeks to relieve hunger and inadequate nutrition throughout Mendocino and Lake Counties by creating access to community-based food production and local, nutritious food. We work with local government and private landowners to lease underutilized land around low-income neighborhoods for the creation of new community gardens.

NCO's Gardens Project seeks to relive hunder and inadequate nutrition throughout Mendocino and Lake Counties by:

  • Creating access to community-based food production and local, nutritious food. We work with local government and private landowners to lease land around low-income neighborhoods for the creation of shared used food producing green spaces, like community gardens.
  • Educating the community about sustainable food production and healthy eating through garden and nutrition workshops.
  • Empowering the gardeners that volunteer to manage their community space through leadership training and mentoring.
