Let's Grow the Good!

Shouldn't everyone be able to eat well? We think so and we're working to increase access to healthy and delicious foods by giving kitchen gardens to people in need across the US and around the world.

What is Kitchen Gardeners International (KGI) and what do you do?

KGI is a Maine-based network of 35,000 people from 120 countries who are growing our own food and helping others to do the same.  

  • KGI started and ran the successful campaign advocating for a new kitchen garden at the White House, a garden which is now inspiring millions of people around the world to eat and live in a more healthy way. (link)
  • KGI partners with and supports small likeminded groups working at the community level via minigrants that allow them to start new kitchen gardens or expand existing ones. (link)
  • KGI uses new and old media to reach hundreds of thousands of people with our healthy, homegrown message. (link)
  • KGI rallies thousands of gardeners from around the world to protect the right to garden in one's own front yard in a number of high profile cases which are setting a precedent for urban gardening and farming cases of the future (link)

Why should I support KGI?

As a small organization with very little bureaucracy, we spend little time in meetings and little money on frills which means that we can deliver more social change bang for your buck.  But as a savvy social investor you shouldn't just take our word for it.  You can also read what the folks at the WorldWatch Institute, New York Times, Washington Post, BBC and Mother Nature Network have said about us.
