Mission

Our Mission: To help people with limited access to high-quality, fresh vegetables grow their own organic food gardens.

Our Vision: That Central Texans have affordable, fresh food grown in ways that conserve natural resources, promote self-reliance, and strengthen communities.

Green Corn Project (GCP) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that is dedicated to helping low-income Central Texans grow their own organic vegetables. With the help of community volunteers, GCP installs food gardens for individuals and families in low-income areas of Austin who have limited access to fresh, nutritious food. We also help elementary schools, community service centers, and refugee shelters grow food gardens. Our volunteers, as well as our garden recipients, receive hands-on education in organic gardening methods. With these gardens, we endeavor to provide food, education, and a sense of accomplishment and pride for all involved in their creation and maintenance.
