Apply for a Backyard Garden! 

In 2019, Backyard Growers focused its Backyard Garden Program on low- to moderate-income older adults, providing each participant with a raised garden bed in their own backyard, training, seeds, and seedlings, plus two years of mentorship to help their new garden thrive. Thanks to this program, which has served over 150 households throughout Gloucester, community residents of all ages are growing their own healthy, delicious food.
