About Gather and Grow at The Farm at South Mountain:

Gather and Grow is a community outreach initiative developed by The Farm at South Mountain. Designed to improve education on gardening within the community, Gather and Grow works with nearby schools and organizations to adapt its programming for different age levels and experiences. Additionally, the program is exploring ways to improve access to fresh foods by creating scalable aquaponics systems, vermiculture composting, accelerated composting, traditional composting, and urban gardening.

The current center piece of Gather and Grow is The Learning Garden located in the North Grove at The Farm at South Mountain. This garden was designed to provide an educational showcase on how to garden and maintain a growing space in small urban scenarios. In connection with The Learning Garden, Gather and Grow has been working with several local schools and school districts to expand the overall mission.
