At Kansas City Community Gardens, we believe that everyone – regardless of their income or the neighborhood where they live - should be able to enjoy healthy foods. We’re on a mission to help families, schools and community groups grow their own healthy fruits and veggies!
KCCG is a non-profit organization that works to make gardening affordable and accessible, particularly for people with limited incomes. We offer low-cost seeds, plants and garden supplies along with rental plots and garden tilling services. We also offer free educational workshops and technical assistance – ensuring that everyone who is willing to roll up their sleeves and dig in the dirt can be a successful gardener. All our products and services are offered on a sliding fee scale, based on household income.
We’re proud to support a network of more than 3,000 backyard gardens and 750 school and community gardens and orchards, located all across the KC metro. Last year, our support reached more than 42,000 households who grew more than 1 ½ MILLION pounds of healthy foods. Together, we’re growing a healthier and greener Kansas City!
Kansas City Community Gardens empowers low-income households, schools and community groups to grow their own vegetables and fruit. We’re here to provide affordable resources and share knowledge so that anyone who is willing to roll up their sleeves and dig in the dirt can be a successful gardener! We offer a membership program for home gardeners. Members receive access to low-cost seeds, plants, supplies and services. Annual membership fees range from $2 to $25, based on household size and income.

The Leanna Flandermeyer Beanstalk Children’s Garden, also located at KCCG’s Swope Park Headquarters, is a unique urban learning environment where children are invited to see, smell, touch and taste growing plants. As kids make their way through the garden, they learn how their food is grown, discover new healthy favorites and leave inspired to make healthy choices.
