Green City Growers - Your Farm, Anywhere.


SOCIAL, ECOLOGICAL & FINANCIAL IMPACT OUR MISSION Green City Growers transforms unused space into thriving urban farms, providing our clients with immediate access to nutritious food, while revitalizing city landscapes and inspiring self-sufficiency. THE GCG VISION GCG envisions a world where rooftops and vacant lots become common and productive places to grow food – an agricultural revolution for a healthier nation. People from all walks of life, living in urban areas, will have access to a network of sustainable farms, fueling personal and environmental health, and local food sustainability. B Corps are for-profit companies certified by the nonprofit B Lab to meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency. BUSINESS AS A FORCE OF GOOD Green City Growers became a Certified B Corporation in 2014, and has since received “Best for the Environment” and “Best for the World Overall” awards. We are proud to be recognized as a leader in a growing community of more than 2,100 Certified B Corps from 50 countries and over 130 industries working together toward 1 unifying goal: to redefine success in business. Growing food has many health and environmental benefits, but the tools and knowledge to do so successfully are limited. Education and engagement around gardening can make a significant difference in an individual’s understanding of their health and how it relates to food. By providing the support businesses and homeowners need to grow-their own, GCG significantly impacts obesity rates, food access issues, and the environment. 16,500+ POUNDS DONATED SINCE 2008
