Donate to our mission
During Amplify Austin, consider supporting our mission of helping Austin Area families, schools, and organizations learn to grow delicious, healthy food. Your donations will further our mission to: expand outreach to plant more organic food gardens for schools that serve primarily low-income communities; expand installation of wheelchair accessible garden beds for gardeners with mobility issues; build container and/or raised garden beds for gardeners who don’t have backyards, in particular, apartment dwellers; and expand our educational workshops that teach our locals how to grow & harvest food gardens.
Green Corn Project (GCP) is a 501(c)(3) organization that educates and assists Central Texans in growing organic food gardens. Since 1998 GCP has built over 200 organic food gardens at homes, schools, and community centers in Central Texas. Our programs help people with limited access to healthy food grow their own vegetables in ways that are affordable, promote self-reliance, strengthen communities, and protect natural resources.

Donate to our greenhouse fund
You can also contribute directly to our gofundme campaign to help us raise funds to buy our first ever greenhouse. In years past, we have made do with borrowed greenhouse spaces and makeshift hoop houses to protect the hundreds of tomato, eggplant and pepper starts we plant every January in preparation for our spring garden installations, or “Dig-Ins.” Exaco Trading Company, a longtime supporter, has offered to sell Green Corn Project one of its high quality RIGA greenhouses at cost. We are thrilled about this opportunity and would be grateful for any amount you can donate to help us pay for our new greenhouse.
