Did you know that the average honey bee only produces 1/12 of a teaspoon of honey in her lifetime, but she can pollinate over a thousand flowers a day? At Gardens Project, we believe that every little contribution goes on to have an exponential impact in creating a sustainable and accessible local food system - we like to call it the Pollinator Effect.
Visit the blog to read stories of people who bring the Pollinator Effect to our communities.
Whether you're a busy bee or a butterfly, your contribution can have the Pollinator Effect too. Become a pollinator today and watch your impact grow!
The NCO Gardens Project relies on tax-deductible contributions from donors like you to continue supporting community gardens across Lake and Mendocino Counties.
Butterflies help families in our community E.A.T.
All donations are greatly appreciated and tax deductible.

Not sure what we might need? Here’s a list of resources and materials we consistently need:
Replace a broken tool
Provide a scholarship for a gardener to grow food for their family for a year
Purchase fruit trees to diversify garden produce
Provide drip irrigation supplies and workshops to promote water conservation in the gardens
Build one new raised bed for wheelchair accessibility and “no bend” gardening
Build a greenhouse and empower gardeners to grow their own plant starts from seed
A monthly gift sustains the day-to-day operations of the Gardens Project mission and allows us to provide consistent support to our network of over 55 community gardens.
