Grow your own food with Backyard Growers this year!

Backyard Growers is accepting applications for the Backyard Garden Program and the GrowBag Garden Program, which connect low- to moderate-income Cape Ann residents with the resources to grow their own food. Our Community Garden Program is now full for the 2023 season.

🍅 Backyard Garden Program – Backyard Growers builds raised garden beds in low- to moderate-income households’ backyards every spring. Apply for a garden bed built for easy access at your own home.

🥗 GrowBag Garden Program – The GrowBag Garden Program offers modular container gardening. Great for Cape Ann residents who are renters or who don’t have access to traditional outdoor growing space. Apply for a container garden and full veggie-growing resources.

Backyard Growers program participants receive access to growing space, veggie seeds and seedlings started by our friends at Cedar Rock Gardens, admission to gardening and cooking workshops, and an optional garden mentor.

Apply today to take full advantage of all our spring programs and get your garden started asap!

Backyard Growers is a Gloucester-based 501(C)3 nonprofit committed to cultivating healthy, connected, resilient communities by empowering people to grow their own food.
