We Are Occugardens
OccuGardens started as a need for solutions. Too many people in our community have limited or no access to safe, healthy foods.
Several people gathered frequently at The Sentient Bean, our second home, to plan the first March Against Monsanto in Savannah, but we felt we needed something more. An ongoing solution to combat the many issues surrounding accessibility to clean, affordable, fresh fruits and vegetables was necessary.
Thus began a movement.
OccuGardens is a non-profit community activist movement that advocates for urban communal self-reliance!
"Growing Community - One Seed at a Time."
OccuGardens has been involved in various projects including an experimental garden in Georgetown and assisting other community gardens. Thomas Square Edible Park is our all organic, DIY garden and learning space for the community. Learn more.
Your generous support will help fund projects like:
An Educational Center Community Workshops
Garden and Building Supplies
Education and Outreach Materials
And much more...
