Everyone should have
access to healthy food
Giving Grove urban orchards help fight food insecurity in urban neighborhoods by dramatically increasing access to healthy, nutritious food now, and for decades to come. These little orchards are a powerhouse of fruits and nuts that are grown, harvested and distributed locally.
Strengthening communities and educating youth
Each orchard is community-led, community-driven, and is managed by local neighborhood leaders. A Giving Grove creates healthy food education programs for children — with many groves located in schoolyards. The Giving Grove proactively seeks to partner with neighborhoods facing health inequities and environmental injustices.
Planting orchards helps
fight climate change
A single Giving Grove orchard, with an average of 15 trees, has the ability to sequester approximately 2.7 tons of carbon over 25 years. Each orchard also absorbs thousands of gallons of water runoff per storm, reducing urban flooding and soil erosion.
