HSG & the Community
At Home Sown Gardens, we believe in the power of gardens to transform lives. We also recognize that there are barriers that prevent many from accessing these havens of peace, tranquility, and inspiration. That's why we make it a priority to seek out ways to bring the beauty of gardens to our communities for the benefit of all of our neighbors.
Through direct and indirect action, we work across many different channels to create a better community for all of our neighbors. We serve on committees to promote environmental practices in our industry. We contribute to scholarships that promote horticulture education to ensure a green future for all. We volunteer with nonprofit groups to plant trees to restore the urban canopy. And we organize service projects ourselves to directly impact our community.
All of these actions are an important part of how we choose to operate and spread the power of “restorative care for your garden and soul!” ™

Community Service Projects
How it works:
Every spring we collect applications from individuals and nonprofit organizations within our service area.
In the past, this has included churches, group homes, senior centers, nonprofit buildings, community centers, and private residences.
After the application period closes, we contact all applicants to get a feel for the project they need assistance with and if we can best serve them.
We then narrow down the field and vote on which one or two projects we will complete that season.

Volunteering with Tree Trust
We love planting trees! Each autumn we plant trees around our community through volunteer events organized by Tree Trust and the Autonomous Collective. Here are some highlights from previous years!
