Grow Your Own Food

Garden applicants must be a south Los Angeles resident and interested in an edible garden that is visible to the general public. 

To date, LAGG has installed over 37 edible gardens through out our service area of south Los Angeles.  A LAGG coordinator will guide you through every step of the planning process of what we call a "Dig-in", or in other words, a garden party.  You invite your family, friends and neighbors. 

We bring the tools and additional volunteers and spend approximately 5 hours on a Saturday morning converting your front lawn into an edible garden. Our program is a fine example of building intentional communities, reimaging neighborhoods and encourages sustainable living practices and so much more.  Garden recipients participate in LAGG's harvest exchange, sustainable living workshops, and other gardening projects. And, as a recipient of our program, LAGG offers continuing gardening support and education to help you keep your garden thriving season after season.

Please fill out this simple survey and a Dig-in coordinator will contact you with more details about LAGG and how we'll help you grow vegetables, culinary herbs and native plants in your own front yard. A site visit will be scheduled for qualifying applicants.

To be selected, you must have a suitable location and commit your time and resources to maintaining the garden. You must also volunteer at the LAGG Teaching Garden and/or another Dig-In to contribute sweat equity and gain knowledge needed to maintain your own garden.

Keeping it local, healthy and affordable.
