Due Date: Sep 23rd 2023



Assisting low-income and disadvantaged people to become self-reliant. NCO provides a safety net of emergency assistance, employment, and training services for low-income individuals and families. In 2007 the Gardens Project became one of NCO's programs with the goal of organizing a sustainable movement of school and community gardens and empowering our community to be the leaders of it all. We seek to relieve hunger and inadequate nutrition throughout Mendocino and Lake Counties by: Creating access to community-based food production and local, nutritious food. We work with local government and private landowners to lease land around low-income neighborhoods for the creation of shared used food producing green spaces, like community gardens. Educating the community about sustainable food production and healthy eating through garden and nutrition workshops. Empowering the gardeners that volunteer to manage their community space through leadership training and mentoring.
