Growing food improves nutrition security and mental health, gets us into nature, and opens our eyes to the weather volatility created by climate change. For twelve years, Big Green has helped people grow their own food with school and home-based programs. Our work across the country brings hundreds of thousands of gardens to life in schools, homes, and communities each year.
