Giving Tuesday • November 29

Giving Tuesday is a global movement of generosity, encouraging people to do good. Please consider donating to Fertile GroundWorks tomorrow through the Community Health & Education Foundation (CHEF) website, as CHEF will generously match gifts with $1 for every $2 donated up to $10K in donations.
We are one of the few local non-profits selected for this opportunity. Please help us take advantage of CHEF’s generosity! On the morning of Tuesday November 29 morning make your gift here: Thank you for helping us continue our mission to TEACH, GROW and GIVE. Your donation will help us continue our efforts to teach, grow and give over 23,000 pounds of organic, fresh produce to our neighbors in need every year.

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.

What we do:

Those in Need

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