The Gardens Project of North Coast Opportunities seeks to relieve hunger and inadequate nutrition throughout Mendocino and Lake Counties by creating access to community-based food production and local, nutritious food. We work with local government and private landowners to lease underutilized land around low-income neighborhoods for the creation of new community gardens.
Lake County Farm to School - The Lake County Farm to School program is a three-year grant-funded project aimed at increasing institutional purchasing of local food by building mutually supportive relationships between food producers and school distrcits in Lake County.
Food PREP - The Food PREP project offers regular Healthy Harvest Workshops in Ukiah and Willits designed to develop food self-reliance. The workshops help community members cook simple, healthy meals using locally grown and seasonal produce.
