We establish local gardens to promote healthy living for us and the planet.

Planting Communities is a non-profit founded by teachers and community members based out of Woodburn, Oregon. Our mission is to encourage the growth of school and community gardens; in the belief that gardens provide unique hands-on learning opportunities and reconnect residents to healthy locally grown food. Our goal is to build community, improve nutrition, reduce hunger and enhance the environment. We strive to promote sustainability and practice good stewardship

The school garden has helped my students to release their stress and be more productive in the classroom, not to mention that they are now anxious to go to the garden any chance they get.
