Long Beach Grows' mission is to promote green, healthy, sustainable urban agriculture in Long Beach, California, & other activities that educate, enhance, & grow our communities by ensuring & safeguarding local food security.
Our vision is a city that feeds itself.
We are building a network of urban farm co-op sites where people can grow food together while building community & relieving hunger, one lot at a time. Unlike typical community gardens where plots are rented by individuals who might never meet the person gardening right next to them, members of our farm co-ops work together in teams on shared land we all grow, harvest, & celebrate together.
The LONG BEACH GROWS website (www.longbeachgrows.org) is available to educate the public about the benefits of urban agriculture, to inform the public about gardening, farming, local real food, & other relevant learning resources available in Long Beach, & to provide access to trustworthy information about the nutritional benefits of real food.
LONG BEACH GROWS has 501(c)(3) non-profit status (Tax ID # 20-4583660) thanks to our partnership with Catalyst Long Beach Network of Communities, our fiscal sponsor; your donations to LONG BEACH GROWS are tax deductible. All donations are greatly appreciated.
