Washington, DC, USA.
“We serve communities across the Washington DC area by making growing food possible regardless of location, age, income or mobility. Our work brings families and communities closer through sharing the life-sustaining joy of growing food.”
“There’s this human connection we have with the soil, knowing where our food comes from and then seeing the children do that and then bringing the children together with the elders to have intergenerational gardening programs is really fulfilling it brings a lot of joy.”
-Program Volunteer source: video: ‘Building an Inspiration Garden with Everybody Grows.’
Everybody Grows helps seniors in nursing care facilities garden by providing access to raised garden beds along with the tools to garden.
Garden access provides an opportunity for older adults and other generations to plant and harvest together and to learn how to grow their own vegetable gardens promoting physical activity and healthy eating.
The organization believes in bringing the home garden to everybody no matter where their home may be.
Volunteers help set up gardens for nursing homes, provide education and inspiration.
Everybody Grows partners with the DC Fire Department, local churches and nursing homes. The organization is committed to helping everyone discover the joy of growing a home garden, wherever home may be.
