HSG & the Community

Home Sown Gardens believes in philanthropy, volunteerism, and charity as important foundational values and ways to be active in our community. 

One way we service the community is through volunteering in various capacities; some directly in the community, some through committees and such. We participate in at least two employee volunteer events direct in the community each season. One is a charity garden that we provide gardening services for. This one is voted on each spring by employees after reviewing applications and then work is performed usually in July or August for a day. 

Each spring, we accept applications from nonprofits, individuals with financial barriers or low incomes, and individuals with mobility barriers (people with disabilities) for this charity garden work. For profit businesses are not eligible to apply.

A few examples of gardens we’ve done in the past include churches, group homes, senior centers, community centers, and personal residences.

Individuals and organizations must be located in the MSP metro area and within our service area and must request work within our scope of services.

Volunteering with Tree Trust

We love planting trees! Each year we divide into teams of HSG gardeners and plant trees around our community through volunteer events organized by Tree Trust and the Autonomous Collective. Here are some highlights from previous years!
