We teach, grow, and give.

Fertile GroundWorks is a nonprofit with the mission to encourage, empower, and teach individuals and communities to grow healthy, nutritious food, organically and sustainably. The Garden of Grace, our principle teaching garden, is located in Livermore on land owned and provided for our use by Asbury United Methodist Church. Produce from our educational garden is given to local community kitchens and food pantries to help feed those in need.

Giving Tuesday is here!

Fertile GroundWorks is honored to celebrate with the Community Health Education Fund (CHEF)

CHEF will begin giving an additional 50% match of any donations up to $10,000 made to Fertile GroundWorks! Their website will go live on November 28th, and we’ll be posting the link here soon. Your support will allow us to continue to improve food security within our community by teaching individuals and young people how to grow food for themselves and others.

Volunteers learn from experienced gardeners on-site. We use sustainable, manual techniques that you can apply to your own garden. Groups are always welcome.
