Shifting the paradigm of landscaping.

We teach landscapers and their clients how to turn lawns and vacant lots into Productive Urban Landscapes that fight climate change, create green jobs, and feed people.

Imagining a greener world, together.

Growing Fruitful Communities takes a village, that's why we focus on people first. Through Roots Down Membership and a host of live and online events, we're bringing together eco-conscious people around the shared goal of better public spaces.
