Green City Growers (GCG) transforms unused space into thriving urban farms, providing clients with immediate access to nutritious food, while revitalizing city landscapes and inspiring self-sufficiency.
Growing food for oneself has multiple health and environmental benefits, but the tools and knowledge to do so successfully are limited. Education and engagement around gardening can make a significant difference in an individual's understanding of their health and how it relates to food. By providing the support businesses and homeowners need to grow-their own, GCG significantly impacts obesity rates, food access issues, and the environment. GCG is an Urban Farming company focused on growing as much food as possible in otherwise unused spaces. From rooftops to raised beds, GCG builds and installs urban farms, offering educational and hands-on programs for businesses, food service providers, and educational institutions.

Green City Growers envisions a world where lawns, rooftops, and vacant lots become common and productive places to grow food – an agricultural revolution for a healthier nation. People from all walks of life will have access to a network of sustainable farms, fueling personal and environmental health.
