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:

Grow Food for 
Those in Need

Grow Food for Those in Need

We grow over 20,000 pounds of organic produce each year to feed the poor and homeless in Alameda County’s Tri-Valley region.

Educate Garden Volunteers

Educate Garden Volunteers

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

Support School Gardens

Support School Gardens

We provide education and support to local schools, corporations, and other community groups to help them create and sustainably operate their own gardens.
