What is the mission of the Southside
Community Garden?

Southside Community Garden (SCG) is a grass-roots initiative that builds garden boxes at the homes of community members in 76104, which is a zip code with one of the lowest life expectancies in the nation.  We  increase access to fresh produce and empower transformational healing in a community impacted by food apartheid and systemic racism.

We achieve our initiative with a network of home gardeners, volunteers, and organizers who share a passion and commitment for growing vegetables, learning sustainability, and promoting justice through food.
