Our Mission
Volunteer and Donate

The Local Food Project grows food and community with empowering resources, training and education. We help create food gardens, micro farms, and food forest-style community orchards using sustainable practices like organic growing, aquaculture, aeroponics and regenerative agriculture. We collaborate to develop 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.
