The Full Story

It all started with a simple school lunch.

Stories are a powerful thing.  They can make us laugh, cry, move mountains, and speak to our inner superhero.  That's how Independence Gardens started; a story about a simple school lunch.    



Independence Gardens, founded in 2013, is committed to empowering children and their communities to grow and prepare fresh, healthy food through garden-based education programs. Our mission is to improve access to fresh food, promote healthy eating habits, and instill values of sustainability and environmental stewardship.  


Fresh food is accessible to every child regardless of where they live.
