Together We Grow!

Our Mission

The mission of Kansas City Community Gardens is to assist low-income households and community groups in the Kansas City metropolitan area to produce vegetables and fruit from garden plots located in backyards, vacant lots, and at community sites. KCCG supports Kansas City’s gardeners as they work to transform the food system, along with their nutritional habits, in backyard and community garden spaces throughout the metropolitan area.

KCCG Member Testimonials

The absolute BEST place to get your garden started each spring. Since I've been getting my starters from KCCG my vegetables have never looked or tasted better. I'll never get plants anywhere else as long as KCCG is still around.
