OPERATION HIGHER GROUND
We partner with congregations to establish or expand gardens or agricultural projects, such as rainwater collection or compost systems, on church-owned land.
Connecting the vast inventory of church-owned land with agricultural initiatives can provide a myriad of health-related, environmental, and economic benefits to the African American community and beyond.
We currently provide training, technical assistance, and funding to church gardens in Ohio, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Indiana, Tennessee, New York, Pennsylvania, Texas, and Nebraska.
