Our Mission
Volunteer and Donate

Empowering resources, training and education grow food AND communities. Our food gardens, micro farms, and food forest-style community orchards involve sustainable practices like organic growing, aquaponics, hydroponics and regenerative agriculture. We collaborate on solutions for a more sustainable and resilient regional food system.

Your donation of time or money helps The Local Food Project increase access to healthy food for those in the greatest need, teaches people the importance of healthier nutrition, provides them with the tools to grow and prepare their own food, and creates jobs while improving our natural environment and building healthier communities.

Local Food Park - The Local Food Project is a 501C3 nonprofit organization which works in disadvantaged communities with marginalized populations. We connect people to nature and healthy food as a catalyst for healthier lifestyles.
